Supervisor award

In order to encourage and stimulate high quality supervision of PhD students, the student union together with the PhD student association established the prize “Teknologkårens pris för berömvärda handledarinsatser i forskarutbildningen” (“The student union’s prize for outstanding efforts in the supervision of doctoral students”). As a PhD student at LTU, you now have the opportunity to nominate your supervisor. The prize will be awarded at the Academic ceremony in November. The winner will be selected by a jury consisting of the chairman of the student union and PhD students appointed by the PhD students’ board.
