There are many types of awards given out to graduate students, ranging from Dissertation Year Fellowships to the prestigious Fulbright Scholarships. The Graduate School also gives out awards designed to recognize and honor student research, scholarship and creativity.
Dissertation Year Fellowships (DYF)
These fellowships recognize and support outstanding UNH doctoral students in the final year of their Ph.D. programs. A committee of graduate faculty representing the colleges/schools of the University evaluated the applications and made their recommendations for the awards.
Graduate Research Conference Awards
Every year in April we hold the Graduate Research Conference. Included in the conference is an award ceremony recognizing some of the outstanding graduate students and faculty we have here at the University of New Hampshire. Among the awards included are the Graduate Student Teaching Award, the Research/Scholarship/Creativity Award, and the Graduate Faculty Mentor Award.
Summer Teaching Assistants Fellowship (STAF)
The Summer Teaching Assistants Fellowship Awards are intended to support research or study during the summer for individuals who have held a teaching assistantship position during the academic year and have performed exceptionally well as a teaching assistant and as a student. A committee of graduate faculty representing the colleges/schools of the University evaluated the applications and made their recommendations for the awards.
