Faculty Awards

Each year NAGS recognizes the contributions of three faculty members to graduate education. Two awards are for excellence in teaching and the third award is for excellence in mentoring.

Teaching Award

The Teaching Awards are designed to recognize excellence and creativity in teaching of graduate students at the master's and doctoral program levels. Innovation in graduate curriculum development and implementation also will be considered. The nominee must have been a faculty member of the nominating institution for at least three years at the time of the nomination.

A certificate and a $1000 award check are presented at the Annual Meeting. The recipient is expected to attend the meeting as a guest of the Association.

The Graduate Dean of each member institution is invited to nominate one individual for the award. 
Master's Teaching Award: Nomination guidelines are posted on the NAGS website.
Doctoral Teaching Award: Nomination guidelines are posted on the NAGS website.

Announcements and deadlines for the annual competition are sent out each Fall to all member institutions.

Mentoring Award

The Mentoring Award is given for outstanding support of a graduate student or graduate students from course completion through research and placement. Criteria that may be considered in selecting a nominee include: provision of sound advice with respect to course of study, encouraging the best performance from students, generosity of time or other measures of effort at mentoring, assisting an unlikely or superficially unpromising student through to successful completion and placement, advice and other assistance regarding quality and quantity of student papers or other forms of publication and performance, extraordinary efforts or success with placement. These criteria are not meant to be exhaustive, but instead to suggest activities that might be considered in a nominating letter. The nominee must have been a faculty member of the nominating institution for at least three years at the time of the nomination.

A certificate and a $1000 award check are presented at the annual meeting. The recipient is expected to attend the meeting as a guest of the Association.

The Graduate Dean of each member institution is invited to nominate one individual for the award. Nomination guidelines are posted on the NAGS website.
