The only award of its kind on campus, this award is given annually each spring to one member of the graduate faculty.

Larry M. Lewellen Award for Distinguished Service

Since 1974, the Council of Graduate Students has presented awards to those students, staff, faculty, administrators and community members who have rendered exceptional service to graduate students at The Ohio State University.

Committee Chair Award for Excellence

Any Committee Chair who has shown significant progress and commitment to ideas and the graduate student experience through their appointment is eligible for this award.
