The Goodwin Medal is presented to a graduate student whose performance of teaching duties is “conspicuously effective over and above ordinary excellence.” The award will be presented to a graduate student teacher who has established a place of distinction in teaching in the opinion of his or her colleagues, students, and faculty. The nominee should be a current graduate student who is primarily at MIT (if involved in a joint program with another university). Co-teachers may be nominated jointly, but the specific contributions of each individual must be detailed. This award was established in memory of Henry Manley Goodwin, the first Dean of the Graduate School of MIT.
If you have any questions about the Goodwin Medal, please contact Scott Tirrell, OGE Director of Graduate Fellowships.
