GSC and MAGS Awards for Graduate Student Teaching Excellence

Established by the Graduate Student Council (GSC), the GSC Award for Graduate Student Teaching Excellence recognizes graduate students who have excelled in classroom teaching and make important contributions to the learning mission 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 their name is 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 2024 calendar year.

2024 award nominations will be accepted from departments August 19-September 23.
