This award program was developed to recognize excellence in dissertation work among our doctoral students. The University of Phoenix, College of Doctoral Studies students who have passed their dissertation defense (with only minor revisions) are eligible for this yearly award.
Four awards will be given out, one per each doctoral program (Doctor of Education, Doctor of Business Administration, Doctor of Management, Doctor of Health Administration, and PhD Nursing).
Awardees will be invited to present their research at the annual Knowledge Without Boundaries Research Summit, where they will also be recognized. Awardees will receive a certificate commemorating their hard work.
