Searching for Canada's Top Dissertation of 2014


Ottawa - The nomination process is now open for Canada’s Distinguished Dissertation Awards.

It is an exciting time of year here at CAGS when we put out this annual call. In partnership with publishers ProQuest-UMI we have been seeking out the best dissertations in Canada for 20 years.

Are you working with or know of a doctoral student whose dissertation makes a unique contribution to their academic field? Then check out the call for nominations and the check list for the application process.

The winners receive a $1,500 cash prize which will be presented at the 2014 CAGS conference in St. John’s Newfoundland. CAGS works with the winners to raise the profile of their research in the media and their stakeholder community.

Two awards are offered each year: one in engineering, medical sciences and natural sciences; and one in fine arts, humanities and social sciences.

The career paths of past winners are impressive. They are scattered all around the world – teaching medieval studies in Australia, performing delicate lung cancer operations in Toronto and curating aboriginal artifacts in Britain just to name a few.

Nominations must be received by March 31, 2014

Questions? Feel free to contact the CAGS office.
