Dartmouth Graduate Studies Graduate Community Award

The Graduate Community Award is designed to recognize outstanding community service undertaken by graduate students on behalf of the entire Dartmouth graduate community. The Graduate Community Award will be awarded annually to the graduate student(s) who best exemplify a deep commitment to serving the Dartmouth community. Successful recipients may have contributed in diverse ways such as participating in student governance, serving on campus-wide committees and in the development and promotion of programs that enhance the academic and social options of the entire community. The individual should combine personal qualities of dedication to inclusiveness, integrity and enthusiasm with effective service on behalf of the Dartmouth community.

The recipient(s) will be selected by the Graduate Studies Office. Departments, individual faculty members or administrators, and graduate students are eligible to make a nomination in the form of a letter of nomination. Students currently enrolled in good standing in Dartmouth Master's and Doctoral programs are eligible for the award. All nomination letters must be submitted to the Graduate Studies Office (to the attention of Kerry Landers) no later than March 28. Each nominee will then be asked directly by the Graduate Office to submit a curriculum vita and a brief summary of their community service activities.

The recipient(s) of the award will receive a cash prize of $1,000.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Kerry Landers in the Graduate Studies Office, 37 Dewey Field Road, Suite 6062, Room 437.
