Alumni Change Makers Awards

05 April, 2022

The annual Alumni Change Makers Awards enable KAUST to recognize the impact our alumni are creating in Saudi Arabia and internationally.

Who can be a KAUST Alumni Change Maker?

Among our community of 2,500 alumni are those doing the extraordinary as they endeavor to find solutions to global challenges. They are alumni who are creating impact in Saudi Arabia or internationally as innovators, pioneers, academics, mentors, entrepreneurs, leaders, disruptors, problem solvers and risk takers.

How do I nominate a KAUST alumnus?

Nominations are open now until June 8 in three award categories –

1) leadership and impact,

2) research, innovation and entrepreneurship,

3) social impact.

Individuals are invited to nominate an alumnus for one (or all) of the three award categories by completing the online nomination form – self-nominations will not be accepted. Nominations close at midnight on June 8, 2022. 

When will recipients be announced?

Recipients will be announced in fall 2022 prior to an awards gala, which will be held in Riyadh on November 10.  For more information on the awards, and to submit a nomination, visit the Alumni Change Makers website.
