Educational award

Last changed: 02 May 2019

Since 2006, SLU has given out two cash prizes of SEK 25,000 for “exemplary efforts within education and teaching” in conjunction with SLU's degree conferment ceremony in October. One award is for an individual (teacher, director of studies or equivalent) and the other award is a group prize (teaching team, department or equivalent).

Call for nominations

Nominations from students and teachers can be made using the web-based nomination form.

The last date for the submission of nominations is 12 June 2019. 


Once the application period has closed, the registrar sends the applications to the educational administrative officer at the Division of Educational Affairs, who prepares each case and makes an initial assessment with suggested prioritised applications and justification. The administrative officer may also request further documentation, if required, from those who submitted the nomination.

The administrative officer sends their assessment to an assessment panel consisting of a chairperson (the deputy vice-chancellor), a representative from each faculty, and two student representatives from SLUSS.

Finally, the deputy vice-chancellor submits their suggestion to the vice-chancellor, who makes a final decisions and gives out the awards at the degree conferment ceremony in October.
