Recognising and rewarding student excellence

Each year Griffith University holds a prizes and awards ceremony to recognise, reward and celebrate outstanding student achievement.

Ranging from money and medals to the provision of plaques, books, vouchers and travel many awards are supplied through the generous donation and sponsorship of key partner organisations who share our vision to recognise and reward outstanding students.

All prizes listed are only confirmed for the 2019 academic year.

In the event of a tie the prize value may be split evenly between recipients. Cumulative GPA or further information, such as a requested statement, may be used to determine the recipient, conditions are dependent on the individual prize and donor.
