Research Achievement Awards

Award Information 

The Research Achievement Awards aim to recognize faculty and staff for their excellence in research and scholarship leading to the advancement of knowledge in their own fields and discoveries with significant impact on society. The faculty awards honor the accomplishments over the course of their career, rather than just research over the past 12 months.

All awardees will receive an honorarium and commemorative plaque. Faculty Research Scholar Awards (including Powe) will receive a research grant. 

Nominations Due to ORED by 5 p.m. September 5, 2022
