Members of the university community are invited to submit nominations for two important awards celebrating research excellence at Memorial. 

President's Award for Outstanding Research

The President's Award for Outstanding Research (Faculty) recognizes young researchers who have made outstanding contributions to their scholarly disciplines. The award includes a $5,000 research grant. Nominations must be submitted to the Vice-President (Research) no later than 5 p.m., on Thursday, Nov. 1. Please email Tina Winsor or deliver to room IIC-1001.

University Research Professor

Nominations are also being accepted for University Research Professorships. University Research Professors have acquired a designation above the rank of full professor. The title is the most prestigious award the university gives for research and/or creative activity and goes to faculty members who have demonstrated a consistently high level of scholarship in their field, including graduate student supervision and other mentoring activities, and whose research and/or creative activity is of a truly international stature. The award carries with it a lifetime designation, an unrestricted research grant of $4,000 each year for five years and a reduced teaching schedule. Nominations must be submitted to the Vice-President (Research) no later than 5 p.m., on Friday, Nov. 30. Please email Tina Winsor or deliver to room IIC-1001.
