GSC and MAGS Awards for Graduate Student Teaching Excellence

Established by the Awards and Recognition Committee of the Graduate Student Council (GSC), the GSC Award for Graduate Student Teaching Excellence recognizes graduate teaching assistants (GTAs) who have excelled in classroom teaching and serve to promote awareness of the important contributions graduate students make to the scholarship of the university. One master's student and one doctoral student is selected for this award each fall. Each award recipient receives a $500 scholarship, and his or her name and department are engraved on a perpetual plaque to be displayed in the student’s department until the next award is given.

The recipients of the GSC teaching award serve as Kansas State University's nominees for the annual Midwestern Association of Graduate Schools (MAGS) Excellence in Teaching Award. These nominees compete for a $750 honorarium that is presented at the annual MAGS meeting in the spring. One master’s student and one doctoral student are selected for the MAGS award.

Eligibility requirements

To be considered for the GSC and MAGS teaching awards, the nominee must be enrolled in a graduate degree program and have teaching responsibilities at K-State during the 2022 calendar year.
