Provost's Office seeking nominations for Morrill Awards
The Office of the Provost is seeking nominations for the annual Morrill Awards, which recognize West Lafayette campus faculty at the rank of professor for outstanding career achievements. The deadline to submit nominations is Feb. 28.
Candidates will have excelled at all facets of the professoriate and will have demonstrated synergies between their roles as teachers, scholars and any aspect of the engagement mission by evidencing the impact or potential impact of their work on society.
The Morrill Award comes with a $30,000 prize, which may be used as discretionary funds or salary supplements. Winners may use funds to support up to two months' summer salary or as a salary supplement of up to one month for each of two years. Up to three awards will be made.
Nominations must include:
* A summary (not to exceed three pages) of the nominee’s career accomplishments in teaching, research and engagement, as well as the synergies among these three aspects of the nominee’s achievements.
* The nominee’s current curriculum vitae.
* Three letters of support. A nomination letter counts as one of the three letters. A letter from outside of Purdue is encouraged.
Nominators should submit nominations with supporting materials at http://www.purdue.edu/provost/faculty/morrill-awards.html. Winners will be announced at the Faculty Awards Convocation on May 8. Questions may be directed to Peter Hollenbeck at email@example.com or Angie Schutz at firstname.lastname@example.org in the Office of the Provost.
