Holly BarnardDear Professor Barnard,

It is a pleasure to write to you with the news that you have been chosen to receive a Boulder Faculty Excellence Award for AY 2020-2021.  There were many nominations submitted to the BFA this year, and given the extraordinary quality of the submissions, the selection committees had to make difficult choices. Be sure to know that your colleagues think very highly of your work, and we are all pleased to celebrate this recognition with you.

This award also includes a $4,000 monetary prize. Please read through the attached Excellence Awards Monetary Prize document and follow the steps listed in order to process the monetary award.  Due to COVID event protocol, we will be hosting a Zoom ceremony for you and your colleagues on Tuesday, April 6th from 4:30-5:30 p.m. Please hold this time on your calendar. We will have more details about the ceremony for you later this month.

Congratulations once again on behalf of the BFA. We are copying your nominators, department Chair, and Divisional Dean as well. Please let us know if you have any questions.
