First Time Supervisor Award


The DIT Fiosraigh – First Time Supervisor Award is an initiative dedicated to DIT staff who are new to PhD supervision.  The purpose of the award scheme is to encourage Dublin Institute of Technology academic staff to become involved in PhD student supervision and contribute to the Institute's research mission.
