These awards continue to be extremely competitive, with strong recommendations for candidates coming from all sectors of the university, including faculty, graduate students, undergraduates, and postdocs, as well as from alumni. This year’s recipients continue the tradition of representing, as one recommendation states, “the best that Duke has to offer.” To read more about these outstanding faculty and graduate students, click on the links to view their profiles.
