  • Graduate Awards

    UCF sponsors several awards for graduate students and faculty recognizing excellence in research, teaching, and mentoring.

    Acknowledging graduate students for their accomplishments is an important part of providing a rewarding academic experience. The College of Graduate Studies offers these awards every year to recognize our outstanding graduate students in a variety of categories. We commend all graduate students who strive for excellence academically and professionally, and encourage program faculty to nominate those who have excelled in a given category. 

    It is also important to recognize faculty members who have gone above and beyond in mentoring of graduate students. The College of Graduate Studies encourages all recent alumni or current faculty to nominate those faculty members who have worked hard in the support of graduate students’ academic and professional development.

  • Student Awards

    Nominations must be submitted electronically to the College Associate Dean for Graduate Studies for consideration for the college award. The college dean will charge a committee to evaluate the documentation submitted by the nominees and select the person to receive the college award.
