ProQuest Distinguished Dissertation Awards Ceremony
April 23, 2019, 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm EDT
While all Ph.D. students produce dissertations of quality, some students write dissertations that are truly exceptional for the high caliber of their scholarship and for the significance and interest of their findings. Each year we invite faculty to nominate the dissertations produced in their programs that were outstanding. The nomination dossiers submitted are then read and discussed by a review panel of faculty members who identify the finalists. Members of the Michigan Society of Fellows read the finalists’ dissertations, review the merits, and select the winners. We recognize these exceptional dissertations with the ProQuest Distinguished Dissertation Awards. All members of the U-M community are invited to attend the awards ceremony and reception to honor and congratulate the award recipients.
