Excellence in Teaching by a Graduate Student

Edward Peck Curtis Awards for Excellence in Teaching by a Graduate Student

The Edward Peck Curtis Awards for graduate student teaching are given to a small number of full-time graduate students who have a role in undergraduate education. Recipients have assisted in undergraduate instruction, and have had significant face-to-face interaction with undergraduates in the classroom or laboratory.

Winners are selected by the vice provost and University dean of graduate studies based on nominations from individual departments or undergraduate student groups.

If you have questions about the award, please contact the Office of Graduate Education
