Please find attached the call for nominations for Dean's Challenge Scholarships. The Department is able to nominate one Ph.D. student for the award. If you meet the eligibility criteria listed in the attached document, and would like to be considered for the nomination, please:
1) Email me a draft of your application materials (informal transcript; resume/vitae; draft application statement)
2) Have your advisor write me an email stating that they will be willing to write a letter of support for the application. If you do not yet know who your advisor will be, please ask a faculty member with whom you have worked closely, and who can speak to the accomplishments you outline in your application material.
I need to receive both emails by 5pm on March 5, so that the Graduate Committee has time to select a candidate to nominate, and so that the nominee and their advisor have time to finalize their materials before the College's March 19 deadline.

Subject: Call for Nominations: Graduate Student Dean's Challenge Scholarships
Attached please find the Call for Nominations for the Dean's Challenge Scholarships for 2018-19. The nominations are due March 19. One key difference this year is that PhD students may be nominated as long as they are registering for courses in the fall, but they do not have to be instructor-led courses as has been the case in the past. Therefore, students who have advanced to candidacy and are only registered for dissertation credits are now eligible. The MA eligibility requirement of being enrolled in instructor-led courses for fall semester has not changed.
We look forward to your nominations and learning more about your outstanding students.
