Teacher Awards

The University Executive Board annually awards two teacher awards: the Outstanding Teacher Award and the Teacher Talent Award.

Student associations nominate teachers by compiling portfolios for their nominees. The nominations must meet the set criteria. A judging committee consisting of Utrecht University teachers and students will select the winners.
