TADP and Graduate Division recognizes excellence in graduate student teaching through the Distinguished Teaching Award for Graduate Student and Outstanding Teaching Assistant Award. Graduate students who held TA or associate-in positions during Spring 2017, Fall 2017, and/or Winter 2018 quarters are eligible.
Distinguished Teaching Award for Graduate Students
The Distinguished Teaching Award (DTA) is a highly competitive award that is granted by Graduate Division and accompanied by a monetary prize. Based on the strength of nomination letters and the nominee’s student teaching evaluations, a committee appointed by Graduate Division will award two or three DTAs to graduate students who have shown exceptional teaching ability.

OTA Award recipients are recognized during the annual Graduate Division Excellence in Teaching Banquet.
