UGA recognizes its accomplished faculty, postdoctoral staff, recent graduates of the Graduate School and current graduate students with a series of awards that celebrate outstanding research and creative achievement, as well as inventorship and entrepreneurship. In light of the unique demands on faculty and departmental administrators this fall semester, Office of Research is extending the deadline for submission of nominations beyond the original date of November 1, We hope that this additional time allows all deserving faculty, postdocs and graduate students the opportunity to be nominated. Every spring The Office of Research, in conjunction with the ARCS Foundation — Atlanta Chapter, invite faculty mentoring PhD students pursuing degrees in science, engineering, and medical research who excel in science communication to nominate their most promising students for this prestigious award.

Students pursuing a graduate degree in the UGA History Department have access to several types of funding. Typical funding packages provide up to six years of support for PhD students and two years for MA students. When considering offers of financial support, we encourage prospective students to weigh the length of our funding period, which surpasses what most history departments offer, our moderate workloads, and the low cost of living in Athens, Georgia. Departmental enhancement grants are also awarded as first-year supplements to the most qualified applicants. In addition, the Graduate School offers competitive, multi-year research and teaching assistantships and fellowships. All departmental and Graduate School teaching and research assistantships include tuition remission, health insurance benefits, and coverage of most student fees.
