Hall of Scholars

ProQuest Dissertation Publishing, was created in 1938 to safeguard threatened scholarly resources, and has been the dedicated steward of graduate works ever since. Our goal is to ensure that dissertations and theses are archived in perpetuity as a valuable component of the primary literature in every discipline.

As a committed supporter of graduate education, ProQuest co-sponsors the Distinguished Master's Thesis Awards/EDT Awards, along with the regional affiliates of the Council of Graduate Schools. In addition, we sponsor the annual Distinguished Dissertation Awards of the Council of Graduate Schools, the Canadian Association for Graduate Studies, the American Society for Information Science and Technology, and the Distinguished Dissertation and Thesis Awards of the Council of the Historically Black Graduate Schools.

We are proud to honor and reward this year's outstanding scholars and winners of the CGS/ProQuest Dissertation Publishing Distinguished Master's Thesis Award and the Distinguished EDT Award.

ProQuest Dissertation Publishing is proud to honor and award this year's outstanding recipients of the CGS/ProQuest Dissertation Publishing Distinguished Master's Thesis Awards and Distinguished EDT Award.
