Sander Establishes $10K Award for Mid-Career Faculty
Outstanding mid-career faculty have a new reason to stick around the University of Arizona: President Eugene G. Sander has launched a new award program to honor leading experts in their fields who have achieved tenure or continuing status at the University within the past six years.
The 1885 Distinguished Scholar award will be bestowed on up to three such candidates, whose research, scholarship or creative contributions "promise to catapult their disciplines to new levels of innovation." In addition to the 1885 Distinguished Scholar title, each recipient will receive a one-time $10,000 award.
The nomination process for the first awards has already begun. Submissions are due Feb. 17 and must include a nomination cover sheet, curriculum vitae, and four letters supporting the nomination.
