Memorial Deadline: Friday 1st, November 2019

External Deadline:


This competition is no longer administered by RGCS. Please contact Ellen Steinhauer, Manager, Awards and Honours, SIRI, for information on this program.

The deadline for nominations and applications is November 1*.

Up to two awards are normally made in any one year to full-time faculty members who have tenure or tenure-track appointments and who have received a doctoral degree, or a disciplinary equivalent, within the fifteen-year period immediately pre-dating the closing date for nominations and applications of this award (e.g. for the purpose of the 2015 competition, your degree or disciplinary equivalent must be received in 2000 or later).   In cases where legitimate leave has impacted the nominee’s research program; such as parental leave, extended illness and military service, the committee will consider extending the 15 year eligibility period.  Such leave must be clearly identified in the letter from the nominator/applicant. The researcher should have served a minimum of two years at Memorial prior to nomination/application.

The award is accompanied by a one-time only $5,000 research grant to be used at the discretion of the recipient for the sole purpose of supporting future research.
