Each year, The Graduate School honors UNC-Chapel Hill graduate students and recent graduate alumni who are making valuable discoveries of direct benefit to North Carolina.

This year, 26 individuals received Graduate Education Advancement Board Impact Awards for projects directed toward a better future for people, communities and industry throughout our state.

The Graduate School publicly recognizes Impact Award recipients at the Annual Graduate Student Recognition Celebration, held this year on April 9 at the George Watts Hill Alumni Center.

“These awardees are using state-of-the-art tools and technologies under the mentorship of great faculty and support from the State of North Carolina,” said Steve Matson, dean of The Graduate School. “I am grateful to the Graduate Education Advancement Board, whose members have supported these annual awards with their own financial contributions for more than 10 years.”
