Graduate Departmental Recognition Awards

CLIVE GRANGER RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP

Six fellowships, named after Nobel Prize winner Clive Granger, are awarded each year for the most promising graduate student research. The fellowship carries a small stipend and allows the student to make more rapid dissertation progress by minimizing work obligations for a quarter.  Nominations are made by the faculty running the thesis workshops (in consultation with their colleagues) and awards are made by the Graduate Committee.

GRADUATE STUDENT RESEARCH SEMINARS (GSRS)

This award is targeted at encouraging the presentation of research projects at all stages of development; but ideally those which have not yet been presented. Projects do not need to be complete or submission-ready to be presented. In fact, presenting them early on is a great way to get the feedback you need early to keep the project on-track. Awardee is selected by a committee of peers.
