Deadline approaching for institutional research awards

The university community is reminded that the deadline for the President’s Award for Outstanding Research (PAOR) - which has updated terms of reference and conditions - and University Research Professor (URP) is fast approaching. 

PAOR recognizes early career faculty who have made exceptional contributions to their disciplines and have demonstrated a potential to become international research leaders. To learn more, please see https://www.mun.ca/research/news.php?id=13723&type=news.

The deadline for the PAOR is now Nov. 30, which is also the same deadline for URP submissions. 

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. 

Completed materials for both the PAOR and URP must be sent electronically to researchawards@mun.ca by 5 p.m. on Nov. 30.

Please contact your unit’s grants facilitator (or, if the unit has no grants facilitator, the person with signing authority for your unit) to confirm if there are earlier, internal deadlines. These internal deadlines must be factored into the timing of the development and submission of these awards.
