The ECHO Award has been presented annually since 2001. A prize for excellent talent with a non-Western background in higher education. These talented students distinguish themselves because of their special academic achievements and social commitment within Dutch society. Over the years, the nominated candidates, finalists and eventual winners of the ECHO Award have developed from young to senior professionals within various disciplines of the professional field. What they have in common is that they know how to jointly represent the ideas of the ECHO Foundation. The network now consists of more than 400 ECHO Ambassadors and offers a variety of knowledge, experience and vision. Bringing together this human, intellectual, social and cultural capital in the ECHO Ambassador Network enables them to join forces to jointly carry out social activities for the benefit of education and the connection to the labor market.
