MUPA Supervisor of the Year Award 2016

Dear Graduate Research (GR) students,

A very good day to all.

We understand that the guidance of your supervisor is crucial for the successful completion of your research. They can be considered as one of the key pillars to your future in the research field.

In 2015, we had organized the MUPA Supervisor of the Year Award in which the award was presented to Dr. Narayanan Ramakrishnan from the School of Engineering.

Based on the positive responses from students and staffs, MUPA is glad to announce the MUPA Supervisor of the Year Award 2016!



Nominated supervisors are expected to be the ones who go above and beyond what is expected of them, as stipulated in the Code of Practice for Supervision of Doctoral and Research Master's Students by Monash Graduate Education (MGE). This can be found at https://goo.gl/INaSl6.

This Award will be a "student choice award" and solely based on the decision by the GR student community. Supervisors can be nominated by their own GR students only. All entries will be judged by an independent subcommittee of the MUPA Executive Council consisting of GR students.

The nomination form along with further details can be access through the following link: https://goo.gl/hOhBVL. The closing date for nomination is 29th July 2016 (Friday) at 5pm.

The winner of the MUPA Supervisor of the Year Award will be announced during the award presentation ceremony in late August 2016.

The award is supposed to be a surprise for the supervisor, therefore students are encouraged to not let their supervisors know about the nomination.

For any further inquiries, please contact Delhousie or Sarah at mupa.vicepres@monash.edu.
