The Friends of UWA Albany award two Amity Prizes each year.
The Amity Prize was established to recognise students at the Albany Centre who have made positive contributions to the overall university environment at UWA Albany, rather than for academic achievement.
The value of each prize is $300.
- Nominations from all staff and students at the Albany Centre are called in October each year by the Development and Operations Manager of the Albany Centre.
- Student contributions to the overall university environment may occur on a variety of levels:
- volunteering activities
- leadership roles
- social participation
- academic mentoring
- other or similar activities.
- On the basis of the nominations received, the Director of the Albany Centre and the Development and Operations Manager select the two recipients considered most worthy of the awards.
