The distinguished Alumnus Excellence Award (AEA) is the highest honour that Greenwich
University bestows upon a graduate in recognition of his / her significant achievements

should be inspirational and should bring honour and pride to the University.
The Alumnus Excellence award is given at every convocation at the discretion of
the Awards Committee. The criteria for selection is that the recipient should be
a member of the Greenwich Alumni Association. The recipient should have made a significant
contribution that has reflected positively on the University.
Following the tradition, once again, in 2010 the nomination forms were sent to the
alumni who had distinguished themselves nationally or internationally for their
excellent and sustained contribution and achievements in public and private sector
or in a profession or scholarly field. Out of 389, 40 applications were received
at the Convocation Secretariat.
The members of the Award Committee met under the Chairmanship of the Vice Chancellor,
Ms Seema Mughal, thoroughly discussed the outline and details drawn by following
the basic procedure until they reached a consensual selection of the deserving candidate.
