Alfred Deakin Medal

Your excellent academic record and contribution to university could put you in line for an Alfred Deakin Medal, named (like us) after Australia's second Prime Minister. Two students from each faculty will receive this honour each year.

Value and duration


A cash sum of $1000 and a framed Alfred Deakin Medal will be presented to you at one of the annual graduation ceremonies.

An endorsement is also made on your student academic record.


The Alfred Deakin Medal is a one-off award.


To be eligible for the Alfred Deakin Medal you must have the highest academic record in your faculty. For those eligible to apply, selection will be based upon the students’ academic record and their contribution to the University and/or the community while studying.

How to apply

You’ll receive instructions on how to apply for this award if you receive a nomination and invitation to apply.

Important dates

Eligible students will be notified about the opening and closing dates for the Alfred Deakin Medal when they're invited to apply.
