Award description: 

Each year, nominees for the Alumni Gold Medal and Governor General’s Gold Medal are considered for a designation of “Outstanding Achievement in Graduate Studies - Master’s or Doctoral”. Nominees who do not receive a medal may be awarded the Outstanding Achievement in Graduate Studies designation. Recipients will be selected by the Advisory Committee on Graduate Scholarships and Awards and the Associate Vice-President, Graduate Studies and Postdoctoral Affairs and will receive a certificate.

In 2018, the Outstanding Achievement in Graduate Studies Designation was renamed and made into two separate designations: University Finalist for the Governor General's Gold Medal and University Finalist for the Alumni Gold Medal.
