  • Nomination materials are to be submitted electronically through the on-line submission site, with uploaded documents preferably in PDF format.  Please have all materials ready to submit at one time; forms may not be saved and added to at a later time.
  • The recipient of this award will receive a certificate and a cash award of $500, and be honored at the annual College-wide Graduate Student Recognition Event, typically held on the day of E-Week Open House.
  • The DEADLINE for submitting a complete on-line nomination form is Tuesday, April 15, 2014 at 11:59 PM.  Late nominations will not be accepted.
