Please find the nomination form here and submit the completed form by email to

Who can nominate
Nominations will be accepted from anyone, who has gained meaningful insight into the nominee’s achievements, e.g. former and current Danida fellows, colleagues and employers, Danish embassy and Danida programme staff, Danida Fellowship Centre partners, universities and alumni, who wish to nominate themselves. We encourage everyone to consider potential candidates across gender and all age groups.

Danida Fellowship Centre will keep all the nominations on file. This includes all future nominations, along with those already received since 2017. A committee at Danida Fellowship Centre will select the alum of the year from the pool of nominations and in line with a pre-defined theme.

Our distinguished Danida alumni
Across every continent, more than 24,000 former and current Danida fellows drive development and effect change in a wide range of sectors. The Danida Alumni Prize was inaugurated in 2017 to celebrate and encourage their work and achievements. WHO Director-General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus was the first alum to receive the prize.

The Danida Alumni Prize is awarded annually to a Danida alum who, based on his or her Danida funded studies, has contributed to positive change in their home country or area of employment. Learn more about the three previous Danida Alumni Prize winners and the Danida Alumni Network.
