The Warren Ober Awards for Outstanding Teaching by a Graduate Student may be granted to graduate students who have made significant contributions to teaching within the Faculty of Arts. The amount of the awards may vary depending on the annual endowment yield. The award is open to individuals who are currently involved, or have recently been involved, in teaching University of Waterloo undergraduate students while themselves pursuing a course of study leading to a graduate degree within the Faculty of Arts. The awards were initiated with funds provided to Dr. Warren Ober, a now retired Professor of English, as an early recipient of the Distinguished Teacher Award. Students must be nominated in February by a faculty member.
Recipients will be currently or recently involved, in teaching University of Waterloo undergraduate students while pursuing an Arts graduate degree.
