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. It is designed to link innovative admissions practices with other institutional practices including, but not limited to, mentoring, support programs, intellectual enrichment, and social support, that will improve student success once students are enrolled in their graduate programs. This award program is especially geared toward encouraging innovations that promise to improve the success of a diverse and inclusive student population.
CGS member institutions are invited to submit proposals for a grant of $20,000 over a two-year period, an amount to be matched by $10,000 from the selected institution. The deadline for applications is September 9, 2022. For more information, visit the ETS/CGS Award page on the CGS website.

Arlt Award in the Humanities), the assistant and associate dean’s award; and the Debra W. Stewart Leadership Award. For more information, please visit the Awards page on the CGS website.
