UWM Research Foundation Senior Faculty Awards
The UWM Research Foundation, in collaboration with the Graduate School, has established the UWM Research Foundation Senior Faculty Awards, designed to recognize researchers who have a long history of significant contributions to their field of research. Unlike the Graduate School/UWM Foundation Research Awards which recognize assistant and associate professors, all research faculty members, except UWM Distinguished Professors, are eligible for these awards.
The Committee of UWM Distinguished Professors reviews the nominations and makes recommendations to the Dean of the Graduate School for the final selections. The individuals selected as recipients will receive a $1,500 cash award and will be honored at the fall UWM Awards Ceremony.
We encourage you to consider nominating a member of your department/program for an award. In addition to providing a means of honoring outstanding researchers, these awards recognize our collective commitment to academic research and to the importance of UWM's research mission.
A call for nominations is sent to campus each Spring from the Office of the Dean of the Graduate School. The nomination materials should include a letter of nomination, two letters of support, and an updated vitae. You may secure letters of support from UWM faculty members or from colleagues outside UWM. Submission of or quotation from confidential letters written for another purpose require permission of the author(s).
