Purdue University Research and Scholarship Distinction Award

The Purdue University Research and Scholarship Distinction Award is an annual award intended for faculty whose recent research or scholarship has made a major impact on their field and who are not eligible for the McCoy Award, which is limited to research in the natural sciences. Therefore, an individual cannot be nominated for both the Herbert Newby McCoy Award and the Purdue University Research and Scholarship Distinction Award.

Faculty in all disciplines except the natural sciences whose research has made a recent major impact in their field are eligible to be nominated for the Research and Scholarship Distinction Award. Past McCoy winners are not eligible for nomination. The Research and Scholarship Distinction Award is intended to honor recent past achievement(s) of major impact; the award is not a “lifetime achievement” award.
