Fox Research Competition

Fox students at the school's annual awards night

The PhD program proudly recognizes its students’ research achievements with recognition at both the Fox School’s Annual Awards Night as well as school-wide research forums.  These forums recognize the winners of both the Fox School’s annual research paper and dissertation competitions, and they afford top-tier PhD students the opportunity to present their research, receive awards and begin building their academic resumes.

In the Fox School’s PhD program, students who have received High Pass grades for their first or second year research papers are often invited to present their work in a school-wide forum, where they are given the opportunity to receive comments on their work, as well as receive awards based on these papers and possible monetary funding to continue their outstanding research.  PhD students who have recently defended their dissertation proposals are also provided with the opportunity to present their research, and recent graduates of the PhD program may compete for the honor of the Best Dissertation award.

Each concentration recommends one to two outstanding PhD students to present at this school-wide awards competition, where they are eligible to compete for these awards and receive further research or dissertation support.

The 9th Annual PhD Student Research Competition will be Fall 2019.
