Annual Awards Ceremony
Each year a committee comprised of faculty, staff, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows reviews a large and highly competitive pool of nominees for the various award categories. Each student and postdoc awardee has their name engraved on a plaque that is housed in our office and may receive a cash prize in addition to the award trophy.
Complete award descriptions and nomination requirements can be found here.
This event is generously funded by the Graduate School, Dental School, and School of Medicine.
