Congratulations to Dr. Edward Chan for being one of five recipients of the 2012-2013 Doctoral Dissertation Advisor/Mentoring Award from the University of Florida Graduate School in recognition of his support of graduate education and sponsorship of student research. You can read about all five recipients in the announcement of their awards.
“Each year the Graduate School recognizes five faculty members for excellence in mentoring doctoral students with the Doctoral Dissertation/Mentoring Award. A committee of faculty and students chose this year’s recipients from among more than 200 eligible faculty across campus. Nominees are required to have served as a committee chair or co-chair for at least one doctoral or MFA student in the last year and at least three in the past five years. Each of the faculty members receives $3,000, plus an additional $1,000 to support graduate students.”
