Deadline approaching: Nominations for Purdue’s Distinguished Research Awards

The Office of Research is seeking nominations for Purdue’s three most prestigious annual research awards. The deadline for nominations has been extended to Dec. 1.

Each year Purdue bestows three awards of distinction to West Lafayette faculty members with recent extraordinary research, scholarly or creative contributions in their field. The awards are:

Each recipient will receive a $4,000 cash prize and an additional $7,000 to support their research. Individuals can be nominated for only one award in any year. Past winners of one of the awards are not eligible for another award in any of the categories.

External supporting letters must accompany all nominations. Nominators or their representatives will be invited to make a 10-minute presentation and answer questions during a selection committee meeting. Award recipients will be announced in the fall and will be recognized during an annual ceremony in the spring.
