Rackham Graduate School
The ProQuest Distinguished Dissertation Award recognizes exceptional and unusually interesting work produced by doctoral students. Each year, Rackham invites faculty to nominate outstanding dissertations produced in their programs. The nomination dossiers submitted are read and discussed by a review panel of faculty members who identify the finalists.
This year, the Rackham Graduate and Professional Student Appreciation Week will take place April 1–5. The week’s activities will feature a number of events aimed at showing our appreciation for graduate students with breakfasts, social events, and networking opportunities.
As part of a broader, campus-wide strategy of complementary efforts, Rackham will offer two related funding opportunities through the MSI Outreach and Collaboration Grant competition. These grants seek to increase access of diverse students from MSIs to U-M.
