Each year (September-August), monetary awards will be presented for the best MSc research seminar ($200) and the best PhD research seminar ($250). Off-topic seminars will not be considered for these awards.
The winners of the seminar awards will be determined via peer evaluation (Graduate Seminar Rubric pdf) by using cumulative numerical rankings from the student evaluation forms and tabulated by the student Seminar Coordinator.
