About this initiative

Faculty awards and recognition are an important metric of the university’s performance.  The goal of providing institutional support to applicants is to streamline the application process and increase the efficacy and impact of applications to prestigious awards and fellowships.

The awards pipeline is continuously in development. Deans, chairs and other faculty members are encouraged to put forward nominations for fellowships and other prestigious awards.

Please allow at least 6 weeks lead time on nominations. Package requirements and deadlines vary. Some deadlines are rolling with nominations accepted throughout the year. Interested deans, chairs and individual faculty should contact Dr. Shivon Boodhoo for help with nominations, general questions, and in-depth assistance with package preparation
