If you are looking for an early holiday present for your faculty mentor, consider nominating him/her for the Graduate Dean’s Excellence in Doctoral Student Mentoring Award. The winner not only receives $3000 but also bragging rights among his/her colleagues!

In order to be eligible for this award, the faculty member must currently be a full-time tenure track or tenured UT Arlington faculty member and have chaired the committee of at least 3 doctoral recipients in the last 8 years. This is not an advising award; please visit the University College website for information on nominating graduate advisors for the Outstanding Advisor Award. The Graduate Dean’s award is intended for faculty who have gone above and beyond to assist doctoral students in their research and writing.

Deadline for nominations is November 30, 2012.
