The Graduate Associate Teaching Award (GATA) is Ohio State's highest recognition of the exceptional teaching provided by graduate students.

Approximately 3,000 graduate students teach as graduate teaching associates at Ohio State each year, and 10 are honored as GATA winners by the university community. Each winner receives a $1,500 award. The GATA award is in its 43rd year. Recipients are selected by the Graduate School Awards Committee, comprised of faculty from a range of disciplines and former GATA winners.
