Purdue Policy Research Institute accepting applications for Excellence in Research Awards

Discovery Park’s Purdue Policy Research Institute is accepting applications for the Excellence in Research Awards. The awards recognize policy-related research that makes a significant contribution toward interdisciplinary understanding of a 21st century problem.

Each year, research awards are given to winners in three categories: faculty, graduate students and undergraduate students. Winners will receive a certificate, a monetary prize and recognition at an awards ceremony.

Any faculty member, graduate student or undergraduate student at Purdue may be nominated, and self-nominations are encouraged. Nominators should include a sentence about why the scholar and work in question constitutes a significant contribution to finding viable alternatives to problems.

Nominees should submit:

* A published paper, book, exhibit or some other evidence of specific scholarly accomplishment in research.

* A statement about how it contributes to our understanding of a 21st century problem and to interdisciplinary research (maximum one page).

* A C.V. or resume.

Nominations should be submitted to ppri@purdue.edu by Feb. 23 with the subject heading “PPRI Research Award Application.”

Materials will be reviewed by a selection committee, and decisions will be announced in March.

For more information about PPRI or the research awards, contact ppri@purdue.edu.
