Every year the GPSA takes nominations and application for one of our six different awards. This year we had the largest response to the call for nominations and applications ever! We had 215 individuals nominate their peers, mentors, student advocates, or personally apply for teaching and research awards. Not only did we receive an increase in interest, we had a dynamic pool of competitive graduate students, staff, and faculty to consider which meant that this year’s process was the most competitive we have ever had.
Out of all the nominees and applicants we selected 90 of the most talented and dedicated students doing work here at Arizona State University. Please join us in congratulating every recipient for their hard work, passion, and service to the student community here at ASU.
