John Lewis Paton award deadline is April 1

Nominations are being accepted for Memorial’s most prestigious institutional award.

The John Lewis Paton Distinguished University Professorship is presented to a faculty member who embodies Memorial’s mission, demonstrating exceptional teaching, undertaking world-class research and sharing their knowledge and expertise nationally and internationally.

Nomination packages must be submitted electronically to researchawards@mun.ca by 5 p.m. on Thursday, April 1.

Named in honour of Memorial University College’s first president, the award comprises the lifetime designation, Distinguished University Professor, and a one-time unrestricted grant ($20,000) to support future research, teaching and/or public engagement activities at Memorial.

More information about the award, including its terms of reference and information on materials required for nomination packages, is available online.

Those considering applying should contact their 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 applications.

If you have questions related to the award, you can contact Ellen Steinhauer at ellens@mun.ca, or Tina Winsor at tinaw@mun.ca, with the Strategic Institutional Research Initiatives (SIRI) unit.
