Nomination Process: Nominations will be made by the major advisor, based on material provided by the graduate student. The student’s portion of the nomination package must contain a one page statement of career goals, a maximum three page CV, unofficial copies of transcripts or academic history, and reprints (if any). The student should also arrange for one letter of recommendation from a faculty member outside the department to be sent to the major advisor before the deadline. The major advisor must write a nomination/recommendation cover letter citing the important accomplishments of the student and the advisor’s reason for nominating, plus assemble and turn in the package.
The nomination materials must be submitted electronically as either Word or PDF files.
Evaluation: Not more than two weeks after distribution to faculty, nominations will be discussed and voted upon by the faculty. A maximum of one award will be made at the Spring Awards Banquet
