Named in honor of Harvey L. Waterman, who served Rutgers graduate students for over 40 years as the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, the Harvey Waterman Medal of Excellence celebrates exceptional scholarly achievements across the humanities, sciences, and social sciences.
The winner of the Harvey Waterman Medal of Excellence will receive a commemorative plaque at our annual Awards Ceremony.
Nominations may be submitted for more than one SGS academic/merit award. However, nominees may only receive one award total.
All SGS graduate students, faculty, and staff may submit nominations for SGS Achievement & Merit Awards. Self-nominations are encouraged.
The Awards Portal will close on March 1, 2022, at 11:59 PM. Please ensure that all materials--online nomination form plus required letters of recommendation--have been submitted before the deadline.
Once you enter the portal and begin the nomination process, you may upload recommender information and send recommendation letter requests to letter writers. Please send these requests as possible since recommenders must upload all materials by the March 1st submission deadline.
To submit a nomination, please visit our new Awards Portal, log in with your NetID and password, then follow the instructions.
