Participation in four awards programs are a benefit of institutional membership in CGS. We present annual awards at the CGS Annual Meeting to young scholars in recognition of their work, and we recognize member institutions for innovative programmatic efforts that benefit their graduate communities.
Created by the CGS Board of Directors to recognize outstanding leadership in graduate education, this award is given annually to a full graduate dean who exemplifies the leadership qualities of the Council’s fifth president, Debra W. Stewart.
This program recognizes promising efforts in initiating or scaling up innovations in graduate education that occur from admission through successful completion of a degree program, focusing especially on innovations that promise success of a diverse and inclusive student population.
This award, established in 1972, is presented annually to a scholar-teacher in the humanities. The award and the fields of competition are determined each year.
These awards are made annually to individuals nominated by a member institution, who have completed dissertations representing original work that makes an unusually significant contribution to the discipline.
