Submissions for Forward Impact Award closed on the 5th April 2022.

Why a Forward Impact Award?

We believe future leaders must go beyond academic excellence; demonstrate drive, and make a difference in the field that matters to them.

At Forward College, we are awarding exceptional students who have demonstrated exceptional engagement during their studies. We believe these achievements are as important as your school reports and should be nurtured during higher education.

What are the awards?

A grant of up to 1000€ per student are awarded to the winners.

Who qualifies for the Impact Award?

Impact Award is for all students who in addition to being accepted to Forward College have demonstrated exceptional engagement with a concrete impact in fields such as:

  • Civic Engagement (e.g., you coordinated a social project such as fundraising for a charity)
  • Sustainability (e.g., you initiated green practices in your school or community)
  • Arts & Sports (e.g., you performed professionally at a musical or sporting event)
  • Technology (e.g., you developed an application or a website)
  • DIY (e.g., you developed or made a product from scratch)
  • Any other event, project or achievement you made

How it works?

Students submit their application via an online form, keeping in mind the following questions:

  • Can you describe your achievement?
  • How did you prepare for it? Did you work with a team? Did you receive support from partners or organisations?
  • Did you have to overcome any challenges?
  • What did you learn from your experience? What skills did you use and what would you do differently now? How did the challenges you faced in the project help build your personality?

Only students who enrolled at Forward College are eligible to our Impact Award.

How are your submissions assessed?

If you are enrolled at Forward College, your applications will be assessed by a panel of experts and partners. They will assess you based on the following criteria:

  • Drive: What it took you to make it happen?
  • Impact: What have you achieved? (prize, selection, concrete impact…)
  • Mindset: How did you approach your project? What did you learn from it?
  • Originality : What makes your project different and innovative?

The 2022 jury included:

  • Amyn Bapoo, former CEO and country representative for the national agencies of the Aga Khan Foundation and the Aga Khan Trust for Culture
  • Laura Jane Silverman, Head of LSE Generate at London School of Economics
  • Richard Fleming, Head of Education and Culture at the British Council in Lisbon
