Graduate School Research Awards
The purpose of the Graduate School Research Awards is to recognize outstanding contributions made to research by graduate students at NDSU. One award of $1000 will be made each year in each college.
- The graduate student must be in good academic standing and currently enrolled at NDSU.
- The student must be involved in independent research (may be supervised).
- Students may not win the award more than once.
Each college will form a selection committee to determine the award winner for that college. The selection committee membership will be approved by the Dean of the academic college.
Submit nominations to the academic college to which your department belongs. Deadlines are determined by the dean's office of the academic college.
- Student will be nominated by their home department. Students enrolled in interdisciplinary programs may be nominated in the college of their primary residence.
- Each department/program may nominate one individual for the award.
- The nomination packet will include:
- A letter from the department which describe the outstanding research contributions made by the student.
- A description of the research experiences of the nominee. This should include publications, presentation, and other significant research accomplishments of the nominee.
