Graduate Student Teaching Awards

The Graduate Student Teaching Awards annually recognize outstanding graduate teaching assistants in each faculty at the University of Alberta. 

Value: The FGSR will provide faculties with a certificate and letter of recognition for each recipient. 

Faculty Deans are encouraged to present the award at a special faculty event such as a reception, lunch or dinner. 

GSTA Outline and Procedures 

The number of awards allocated to each faculty is based on the number of hours worked by their graduate student teaching assistants during the previous academic year. 

For the complete selection process, eligibility, and adjudication criteria, please see the UAPPOL graduate student teaching award procedure. Please note: the deadline has been extended this year to Feb. 20, 2017.
