Weinberg College Outstanding Graduate Student Teacher Awards

Each year the College selects three teaching assistants to receive Weinberg College Outstanding Graduate Student Teacher Awards, one per Division. A Committee on Teaching Awards evaluates nominations from departments and undergraduate students and recommends candidates to the Dean. The award carries a cash stipend of $1,000.


Nomination materials

The deadline for receipt of materials in the Dean's Office is February 15th (if February 15th falls on a weekend, the due date is the following Monday). Starting in 2022-23, Weinberg College will be using the Faculty Folio RPT interface to manage the workflow for the College Teaching Awards. Departments that plan to nominate a graduate student for a teaching award should contact Elizabeth Kim by January 20th. Her office will then create the nominee’s case in Faculty Folio RPT and release it to the department. The department will have until February 15th to upload all documents to Faculty Folio and forward the nomination packet to the Dean’s Office. Please feel free to address questions or comments about the awards and selection process to Elizabeth Kim.
