Graduate School Announces New Guidelines for Outstanding Thesis and Dissertation Awards!

Faculty nominations for the 2014 Thesis and Dissertation Awards in engineering, mathematics, physical sciences, and social sciences are due June 20th!

FYI: The Graduate School has announced that the Outstanding Thesis and Dissertation awards will now follow the criteria of the Council of Graduate Schools (CGS) outstanding dissertation award. Research topics for awards will alternate between social sciences, mathematics, physical sciences, & engineering (even years, like this one) and biological life sciences, humanities, and fine arts (odd years). First place awards given by Texas Tech in each category in the designated year will be nominated for the national CGS awards.

Faculty nominations for TTU’s Outstanding Thesis and Dissertation awards are due by June 20, 2014 (graduate student may NOT self nominate). The Graduate School will consider theses and dissertations completed between July 1, 2012 and June 30, 2014. Degree requirements must also have been completed in this time frame. Only dissertations on topics considered by CGS during even years (social sciences, mathematics, physical sciences, and engineering) will be considered for this year’s TTU awards. For more information, please see the published guidelines for the TTU Outstanding Thesis and Dissertation Awards, which was sent out to graduate students’ addresses last week.
