Notre Dame provides multiple forms of support to graduate students, allowing them to focus on their academic goals.
Offering a world-class faculty and state-of-the-art facilities, Notre Dame gives graduate students the tools needed to become tomorrow’s academic and professional leaders.
Dr. Jennifer Tank of the Department of Biological Sciences was selected by a faculty committee to receive the 2013 James A. Burns, CSC Award, and Dr. Kathie Newman, of the Department of Physics, was selected to receive the 2013 Director of Graduate Studies Award.
The highest honor awarded to a graduate student, the Eli J. and Helen Shaheen Graduate School Awards are bestowed annually upon the top graduating student in each of the four divisions of the Graduate School – Engineering, the Humanities, Science and the Social Sciences.
To ensure that postdoctoral scholars in the early stages of their careers receive necessary resources, training, mentoring and comprehensive professional development support, the University of Notre Dame is forming an Office of Postdoctoral Scholars. The newly formed office will be administered through the Graduate School and is slated to open July 1.
