The Rackham Predoctoral Fellowship is one of the most prestigious awards granted by the Rackham Graduate School. Doctoral candidates who expect to graduate within six years since beginning their degrees are eligible to apply, and the strength and quality of their dissertation abstract, publications and presentations, and recommendations are all taken into consideration when granting this award. Please join us in congratulating these exceptional students on their achievement.
Supporting effective faculty mentoring of graduate students is a top priority of the Graduate School. Outstanding mentors guide students throughout their professional training with respect and concern, serving as advisor, teacher, advocate, sponsor, and role model. To recognize excellence in mentorship, Rackham asks graduate students and faculty for nominations for three awards: the John D’Arms Faculty Award for Distinguished Graduate Mentoring in the Humanities, the Rackham Distinguished Graduate Mentor Award, and the Rackham Master’s Mentoring Award.
