The African Community of Practice Outstanding Achievement Award is open to African students studying a BA, MA or PhD at King's. The award offers an opportunity for the recipients to carry out an activity related to their academic areas of interest, which enhances their academic journey and would otherwise not have been possible. For this, each winner has received either £500 or £1,000.

Through the ALC and African Community of Practice (ACP), departments were chosen across King's that have been particularly active in Africa-related studies. Faculty from those departments then selected high-achieving African students worthy of this award using criteria which included:

  • most improvement over the course of study
  • highest performance
  • most impressive student engagement

The award has also been made possible by the generous donation of Richemont International, who have sponsored this award for the previous three years.
