Submitted by Bailee Irwin

Departments are invited to nominate outstanding graduate student teachers for the Graduate Student Council Award for Graduate Student Teaching Excellence. The award recognizes one master's student and one doctoral student who have excelled in teaching.

Each award recipient receives a $500 scholarship from the Graduate Student Council and serves as K-State's nominee for the Midwestern Association of Graduate Schools Excellence in Teaching Award. Award winners receive a $750 honorarium and are recognized at the association's annual meeting in the spring. Since the award was initiated in 2012, K-State has had six winners and two honorable mentions.

Eligibility requirements: To be considered for the Graduate Student Council and Midwestern Association of Graduate Schools teaching awards, the nominee must be enrolled in a graduate degree program and have an appointment with teaching responsibilities at K-State during the 2022 calendar year.
