GSE Award

Award for Excellence and Innovation in Enhancing the Graduate Student Experience


NOTICE: In response to the rapidly emerging COVID-19 crisis, CAGS will be postponing all of its 2020 awards and competitions until further notice.

The deadline for submitting nominations for the Graduate Student Experience Award (GSE Award) has been postponed indefinitely. The adjudication process for this award will likely take place during the late-summer or fall.

Please note that CAGS is continuing to accept nomination packages for this award.

What makes a graduate school great?

Many things. But more than ever, graduate schools can make a difference in their students’ lives beyond just granting a degree. They do that by being accessible, supportive and open to new approaches.

The Canadian Association for Graduate Studies (CAGS) presents this award annually to a member institution. The winner is invited to share their work at a CAGS conference workshop. It is a way to celebrate the innovative and creative ways graduate schools serve their school. It is also an opportunity to share best practice and experience with member schools, fellow deans and stakeholders.
