Outstanding Graduate Student Research Award
The Outstanding Graduate Student Research Award is open to any doctoral or MFA graduate student who has completed their candidacy requirement. Applicants are judged by their completed and /or ongoing research projects, participation in research events and conferences, presentations and publications, future research plans, and a letter of recommendation from a faculty mentor. The award is given in the areas of STEM, Social Sciences, and Humanities, for a total of 3 awards annually.
The OGSRA was started in 2019 with the goal of promoting the research productivity of graduate students, and changed in 2021 from a semester award to an annual award.
