Matthew H. Willing Award for an Outstanding Dissertation in Progress

As a result of a generous gift from alumnus, Lloyd Jorgenson, in honor of former faculty member, Matthew H. Willing, the Department annually holds a competition for an award for excellence to a dissertation in progress. Any dissertator with an approved dissertation proposal is eligible to apply for consideration. Submissions are judged by a faculty committee appointed for the purpose based on the student's dissertation proposal and overall record.

  • Nominations may come from the dissertator him or herself or from the dissertation committee.
  • Submissions to the award committee must include at least an approved dissertation proposal and a letter of recommendation from the advisor. More materials may be included.
  • The actual amount of the award will be determined by the committee based on availability of funds in a given year.
  • A student may receive the award only once.
