Hello MS & PhD students,

Please remember to apply by the deadline of March 17th, 2023.

Also, please note that MS students can apply for the three graduate student awards. While it is true that the outstanding graduate student award is mainly for PhD students - as they have the accumulated achievements over five years - any graduate student, who has a current or past GTA and GRA, could also apply, as they are evaluated on the yearly-basis.

Regarding who should write a letter on behalf of a master's student, it can be your faculty thesis or project advisor OR your faculty supervisor for your GTA or GRA.
