What exactly are the Fontys Denk Groter Awards?
The Fontys Denk Groter Award is a prize that is awarded to an employee or a student who has made an extraordinary contribution to the educational programme of Fontys. The Board of Directors annually awards this prize at the opening of the academic year in the canteen of R5. This year this ceremony will take place on 28 August 2017. The winning entry has shown an exceptional educational achievement and is of value to Fontys in terms of public relations and/or societal relations. In addition, the entry transcends the institution itself, it is innovative and a striking example of growth by attention and challenge (Think Larger)

There is a first, a second and a third prize. The winners of both the employees and the students will receive a prize of €3,000. The second prize is € 2,000. The third prize is € 1,000.
