Applications for the 2023-2024 University of Manitoba Graduate Students’ Association (UMGSA) Teaching Award are now CLOSED.


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.
