During the 2017/18 working year, the Student Union Malmö sought new ways to motivate, reward and inspire Malmö University’s students to increase involvement outside their studies, both in terms of study social and educational policy involvement.
The Union Award is given out annually during the end of the spring semester to members of the Malmö Student Union at Malmö University, and consists of a total of 10,000 kr divided into two scholarships for contributions from individual students of 2,500 kr each, and a group scholarship of 5,000 kr for groups of students who have completed a joint promotional work. Each recipient of the Union Award also receives a signed diploma where the motivation for winning is written.
The award is intended to reward those students who have been involved in addition to their studies to contribute to an improvement for students at Malmö University, and may be used as the prize winners consider most appropriate. If a prize is awarded to a group of students, they are responsible for distributing or using the prize money as they see fit in the group.
