Dean of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies Awards for Excellence
Simon Fraser University presents the Dean of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies Award for Excellence in Supervision annually to recognize excellence in the supervision of graduate students.
Normally two awards will be given each year.
If a junior faculty member is not a recipient of either of these two awards, a third award may be given to recognize a faculty member in the early stage of his or her career (less than ten years from initiating a tenure-track or equivalent appointment) who has built an exceptional graduate student supervision record for that career stage.
Each award consists of a prize of one targeted graduate fellowship (GF) of $6,500 that can be awarded in the following academic year to a graduate student of their choice (the student must meet the terms of reference for a GF).
In addition, the recipient’s name is inscribed on a permanent plaque in the Thesis Defence Room.
Minimally one award each will be in the two categories defined by the Canadian Association of Graduate Studies: Fine Arts/Humanities/ Social Sciences and Engineering/Medical Sciences/Natural Sciences.
Submit to Graduate Studies with all signatures and attachments.
