Outstanding Dissertation Award
The Graduate School's Outstanding Dissertation Award recognizes exceptional scholarship, research, and writing by doctoral students. These awards are intended to help raise the profile of our doctoral students and identify dissertations worthy of nomination for various national awards, including the prestigious Council of Graduate Schools / UMI Distinguished Dissertation Award.
Awards are given each academic year for Humanities, Sciences, and Social Sciences. The winners receive a $1000 cash prize and are honored at the annual Outstanding Graduate Student Recognition Luncheon.
