The Awards

The Student Social Mobility Awards recognise students who have excelled in their studies and beyond, and shown great potential to excel as they launch their careers. Our focus is on students who have demonstrated great resilience, determination or initiative, or boosted their employability in innovative ways. We aim to showcase up-and-coming talent and identify those rising stars to watch in the years to come.

There are also awards for those that have championed social mobility and enabled others to succeed, including student, teacher, mentor, employer and university categories.


upReach are delighted to announce that Bank of America Merrill Lynch will be the Platinum Partner of the Student Social Mobility Awards 2019.
