Nominations open to find inspirational women at Stirling Uni

As most people are already aware, this month is Women’s History Month, a time to celebrate and feel inspired by women from all over the world.

This year, Stirling Students’ Union will be holding a special award ceremony to honour this, but also to celebrate the achievements of women a little closer to home –– here on campus.

If students have someone in mind –– whether it be a female student or staff member –– they can go onto the Union’s website to fill out a nomination form.

There is no upper limit to the number of nominations someone can make, and each one comes under a different category.

These include:

  • Student/staff studying or teaching STEM subjects
  • Someone in a leadership role
  • Studying/teaching a postgraduate course
  • An international woman at the university
  • Student/staff in sports
  • An equality champion at the university

Nominations for all of the above will close on March 23, and a winner will be selected from the ten categories.

There will be an awards night in Underground at 6-8pm on Thursday March 29.

As the Union have stated, it will be “an evening of celebrating inspirational women on campus and in our community”.


So, if you know a female who has inspired you here at the university and deserves recognition, then get nominating online now before it closes.

If you have any further questions about the awards, you can email Astrid Smallenbroek at
