The Willard North Graduate Research Award is named in honor of Dr. Willard North who devoted many years to fostering research at UCM.  Dr. North was a proponent of sound research design, appropriate statistical techniques, and proper interpretation of results.

The purpose of these awards is to promote and encourage those with the highest levels of graduate research and scholarly investigation in keeping with Dr. North’s standards.

The Willard North Graduate Student Research Award is available to all graduate students seeking graduate degrees from University of Central Missouri. All applicants must be enrolled in graduate courses during the semester in which they apply for the award. Graduate students are limited to one (1) award per degree program and a maximum of two (2) awards.
