FGSR Great Supervisor Awards

The FGSR Great Supervisor Award recognizes supervisors who demonstrate strong supervisory skills or who foster mentorship in their programs.  A great supervisor is someone who has been particularly helpful, such as a supportive supervisory committee member, or someone who fosters good supervision and mentorship in your program.

Nominations for Great Supervisor Awards are submitted to FGSR by the academic departments in which the supervisors do their outstanding work.
