Graduate School Academic Excellence Award (GAEA)

The Graduate School Academic Excellence Award (GAEA) is a collaboration between the Graduate School and Financial Aid to incentivize and reward our top Michigan Tech undergraduate students to pursue an accelerated master’s degree. Nominated students will receive a one-time tuition award for their first semester as an accelerated master's student.

For students to be eligible for the Graduate School Academic Excellence Award, they must:

  • Be a first-time accelerated masters student (on-campus or online).
  • Be enrolled as a graduate student—full-time students (9 credits) will be eligible for $2,500 and students enrolled less than full-time will be eligible for $1,000.
  • Not be receiving funding from Michigan Tech or an external source for their first semester of enrollment (e.g. assistantships, fellowships, scholarships, grants, or tuition support).

Individual Development Plan (IDP)

The IDP is a tool to help identify student goals, opportunities, and potential hurdles and discuss these with an advisor or mentor.

Mentoring Guidance

The National Academic Press published an article on Being a Mentor to Students in Science and Engineering.
