- Overall scholarly activities, such as service as a reviewer of research proposals for federal agencies or other funding sources, service as a referee or editor for professional journals, and contributions to training students in research, scholarly, and creative endeavors.
- Potential for significant contributions to enhancing the effectiveness of the subject matter taught in the classroom.
- A letter of support from the department chair, if the nominee is a faculty member, or from the dean, if the nominee is the chair of the department.
Faculty, staff and students may make nominations, and faculty are invited to nominate themselves. Since the committee will not engage in the gathering of documentation, each nomination or application must be accompanied by thorough evidence of the nominee's qualifications for the award. Nominations are due no later than FRIDAY, DECEMBER 18, 2015. An original of the nomination and supporting documentation must be submitted to the Research Development & Compliance (RD&C) office, Twamley Hall/Room 105, and also emailed as a single PDF file to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The awardee will be selected by the Outstanding Research Awards Committee, which includes the Associate Vice President for Research (chair), the chair and one member from the Senate Scholarly Activities Committee, three members of the Associate Deans for Research Committee, and one member of the Faculty Seed Money Committee.
Since previous awardees are ineligible for nomination until five years have passed, Jonathan Geiger (2015), Alena Kubatova and Jefferson Vaughan (2014), Mark Hoffmann and Holly Brown-Borg (2013), Sandra Short (2012), and Sandra Donaldson (2011) may not be nominated this year.
