Congratulations to 3 of our departments' Ph.D. students; Anastasia Kvasha and Souran Chatterjee received the Award for Advanced Doctoral Students and Attila Katona received the Academic Achievement Award for First Year Doctoral Students.
The Central European University Awards for Advanced Doctoral Students are given to doctoral students for outstanding student research. The award amounts to 500 EUR apiece. The awardees must have completed a 'significant portion of research that serves as the basis of the dissertation and scholarly presentation of tangible results that directly stem from the research' and have a GPA of 3.5 or above (see full requirements). The CEU Academic Achievement Awards for First-Year Doctoral Students are meant to reward outstanding coursework and performance during the comprehensive exam.
Kicking-off my doctoral research on urban sustainability transitions, including my current fieldwork in China, has been a challenging, but rewarding experience. I'm very thankful for this award, and for the continued support of the Department."
