The following materials must be submitted as one PDF packet to the Graduate School via email ( for each student nominated by Friday, June 10, 2022:

  • A letter of nomination from the GPD, Program Coordinator, or faculty member indicating why the student should be considered for the award (if the student is being nominated for more than one award, a complete package for each nomination must be submitted);
  • An unofficial copy of the student’s transcript;
  • A goal statement written by the student (500 words maximum); and
  • A CV from the student.

While the awards are not discipline-based, one of the Alumni Association awards must be given to an ODU alumna/alumnus. Students who already hold an assistantship may be nominated for any or all of the awards. International students should seek guidance from the VISA Office regarding their eligibility.
