The Boulder Faculty Assembly Awards for Excellence in Research, Scholarly, and Creative Work, 2013

The Boulder Faculty Assembly is pleased to announce that up to four (4) awards for excellence in research, scholarly, and creative work will be awarded for spring 2013. Each award will be in the amount of $3,000.

The purpose of these awards is to recognize faculty for demonstrating overall excellence in research, scholarly, or creative work. Emphasis will be on work of high quality that does not receive recognition through the usual channels. For instance, nominations for interdisciplinary research, work accomplished with undergraduate students, or an integrated long-term achievement, are particularly invited.

Nomination packets must contain the following materials in the following order:

A cover letter from the person nominating the faculty member. If several people are nominating the faculty member they should jointly prepare one cover letter and cosign it.

1 to 2 supporting letters of evaluation from appropriate colleagues.

A statement written by the candidate detailing the impact of his or her research. Examples of relevant criteria include:

  • The work’s advancement of our understanding of important issues in the discipline or in other areas
  • Collaborative nature of the work, involving other faculty and/or students
  • The publication/performance of the research/creative work
  • Enrichment of the teaching mission of CU-Boulder

The candidate's curriculum vitae.

If the candidate’s work has been recognized by a prize of some type, please include that information. The research/creative work for which the award is given may be sponsored or unsponsored.

Please do not submit samples of published materials.

(Other supporting materials such as letters written by students may be included if appropriate but must follow the items on the list above, and should not be addressed to the nominee but to the nominator or to the award selection committee.)
