The University Senate Committee on Faculty Research (CFR) invites Miami University faculty to nominate tenure-eligible and tenured colleagues (including librarians holding the M.S.L.S. degree or equivalent) for Distinguished Scholar and Junior Faculty Scholar Awards. These annual awards celebrate the accomplishment of outstanding Miami researchers and scholars.
Nomination letters are important in the evaluation process and should include:
- A perspective on the contribution of the candidate to his/her field that is understandable to the non-specialist,
- Information on the importance/impact of the candidate’s contribution on the national/international level (also understandable to the non-specialist) and
- Mention of the nominee’s particularly acclaimed works, professional recognition, honors, and leadership roles.
The deadline for nominations is 5:00pm on Monday, January 20, 2017. This deadline is earlier than the March deadline that was in place in previous years.
Before nominating a deserving colleague, please read the program guidelines carefully.
CFR is charged with supporting and encouraging the development of research and creative activity at Miami University. In carrying out this charge, the CFR administers programs that support and celebrate faculty research and creative activities. Application to these programs is made through OARS. Guidelines for all CFR programs — including detailed information, eligibility criteria, and application procedures — are available on the OARS website.
