The William S. Livingston Outstanding Graduate Student Academic Employee Award honors outstanding performance by graduate student academic employees.
Each year, the Graduate Student Assembly (GSA) calls for nominations, which must be sponsored by a faculty member. Each graduate program may submit only one nomination for each appointment category.
The nomination categories are:
- Teaching assistant
- Assistant instructor
- Graduate research assistant
Three $1,000 winners will be chosen by a GSA review committee of peer graduate students.
All graduate students are eligible for nomination for an award if they held one of the required appointment titles during the prior calendar year.
Nominations are may be submitted using the Graduate School’s online awards system. Nominations must be initiated by faculty or an administrative supervisor. Nominators are required to solicit all required documentation from their respective nominees and to upload it on the nominee’s behalf.
The Student Awards System will direct the nominator to a series of questions regarding the student’s performance. The nominator may upload a letter in lieu of responding to the questions provided. For full consideration, the letter must address all the information requested in the questions.
