Special doctoral awards

The Doctoral School announces a call for applications for special doctoral awards during the second semester of each academic year.

The call is approved by the Doctoral School’s Standing Committee and is open to doctoral degree holders who have obtained a cum laude distinction for the defence of their thesis in the academic year specified in the call.

The awards are judged by a jury appointed by the Doctoral School’s Standing Committee for each area of knowledge and call; the final decision is taken by the Doctoral School's Standing Committee and ratified by the UPC's Governing Council.

The corresponding diplomas are presented at the doctoral degree’s inauguration ceremony the following academic year.

We encourage you to participate in the calls, as they are a way of making your doctoral research visible and sharing your sustained efforts with society.
