Outstanding Thesis Award

    Every summer SEAS selects a small number of theses submitted in that academic year (an autumn and a subsequent spring term), which are deemed worthy of special attention. The authors of these theses are distinguished by the Outstanding Thesis Award.

    If their author approves, outstanding theses are published in overSEAS.
