Distinguished Dissertation Awards
The Graduate School is pleased to announce that in 2021, up to six outstanding doctoral students will be recognized with the Auburn University Graduate School's Distinguished Dissertation Award.
The application process, selection criteria, and award categories are modeled after the Council of Graduate Schools/ProQuest Distinguished Dissertation Awards, so that selected award-winners from Auburn may also be nominated for these national awards at the appropriate time.
Thus the fields of competition for 2021 are Humanities/Fine Arts and Biological Sciences.
Winners of the award will be recognized at the Graduate School's annual awards ceremony with an honorarium of $500 and a citation. Upon the recommendation of the Awards Committee, the Graduate School may nominate winners of the awards for the Council of Graduate Schools/ProQuest Distinguished Dissertation Awards.
Each college/school is invited to select and nominate up to three students (in each award category as appropriate) for the Graduate School awards. If a college/school nominates more than three students in any one category, the Graduate School will contact one of the unit's associate deans (or another designee) to downselect the top three candidates.
The deadline for submission to the Graduate School is Friday, April 23, 2021.
