Nominations for the Frans van Leijden Award

On Thursday, 10 June 2021, eighteen months after the death of our beloved and highly esteemed colleague Frans van Leijden, the very first Frans van Leijden Award will be presented during the GROW event in tribute to him. The nomination procedure is starting today.


HAS students and graduates who share Frans’ characteristics and skills will be considered for the Frans van Leijden Award!

Someone with a vision and the persistence to realise it in partnership with other knowledge institutions, government bodies and/or business. Someone who behaves like a pioneer, and dares to deviate from the beaten track. Someone, therefore, who dares to test the limits and break imposed boundaries

Do you know an HAS student with these or similar characteristics? Or someone from HAS who graduated in 2019, 2020 or in the spring of 2021? Someone who could use a helping hand to take his/her idea, initiative or company to the next level? Then nominate this person right now!


You can use this application form to nominate a HAS student or recent HAS graduate for the Frans van Leijden Award. Nominations can be sent until Tuesday, 6 April 2021, 17:00.
