The purpose of the award is to recognize individuals who have made, in the estimate of their graduate students, a significant contribution to their teaching profession. Registered students in the Faculty of Graduate Studies are not eligible for this award. The award will include a cash prize of $500, and a scroll given at Fall Convocation during the following academic year to commemorate the honour. Graduate students are encouraged to nominate their thesis advisor, a seminar or course instructor, or a faculty member with whom they have conducted research. The Graduate Students’ Association Awards Committee is interested in selecting individuals who display a dedication to knowledge and sensitivity to their students and the student community.
