Teaching Awards

Princeton graduate students make a profound impact in undergraduate teaching, guiding students towards new levels of scholarship. Each spring, departments and programs nominate Assistant Instructors (AIs) in recognition of this transformative work. Final selection is made by a committee chaired by the deputy dean of the Graduate School in partnership with the academic affairs deans and staff from the McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning.

Award winners are selected for their work in the prior calendar year.
