Paper Awards

All  students whose abstracts are accepted for presentation in the Annual Graduate Research Symposium, are eligible to submit a paper for award consideration in their respective categories.   The intent of these awards is to acknowledge the intellectual, creative, and cooperative research work of graduate students presenting their research at the Symposium.

These awards acknowledge students whose paper shows:

  1. Original investigation and the integration of knowledge, and
  2. Distinguished excellence in scholarship through potential contribution to the discipline and recognition by peers.

Monetary awards are awarded to both visiting/VIMS and W&M A&S scholars.

VIMS students cannot apply for W&M Awards

New for 2019 will be a “People’s Choice” poster prize to be voted on during the poster session.
