Averitt Awards for Excellence in Graduate Research and Instruction
The Averitt Award is the highest honor bestowed upon graduate students within the Jack N. Averitt College of Graduate Studies and is funded by the Graduate Student Organization (GSO). Through nominations from each department’s graduate program faculty, two semi-finalists will be chosen by the Graduate Program’s Director/Coordinator, one from each category (Excellence in Research and Excellence in Instruction). The Averitt Award will consist of two separate $1,000 cash prizes and a Crystal Eagle trophy. This trophy has been specially designed for the award and clearly denotes the name of the awardee and the classification of the award (Excellence in Research or Excellence in Instruction).
