Past Awardees

The UWM Research Foundation, in collaboration with the Office of Research, presents the UWM Research Foundation Senior Faculty Awards. First awarded in 2009, they are designed to recognize researchers who have a long history of significant contributions to their field of research.

Departments/programs are encouraged to nominate a faculty member 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.



The nomination materials should include a letter of nomination from a dean, department chair, or multidisciplinary program director; two letters of support; and an up-to-date vitae. You may secure letters of support from UWM faculty members or from colleagues outside UWM. If you wish to submit or quote from confidential letters written for another purpose, you must first secure the permission of the author(s).

Submission information is posted each year during the nomination period.


The Committee of UWM Distinguished Professors reviews the nominations and makes recommendations to the interim vice provost for research 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.
