Presidential Research Scholars awards program seeks 2019-20 nominations by April 18

From staff reports | Feb 28, 2019


Ohio University is seeking nominations for its 2019-20 Presidential Research Scholars awards program. The program is targeted to faculty members who have garnered national and international prominence in research, scholarship and creative activity and who demonstrate clear promise for continued, significant productivity in their research/creative activity.

Nominations will be accepted until 4 p.m. on Thursday, April 18.

Each award recipient will receive $3,000 to be used at the scholar’s discretion as an honorarium or to support research or creative works.

For 2019-20, applications will be solicited for (1) Social and Behavioral Sciences, (2) Physical Sciences and Engineering, and (3) Arts and Humanities, as no awards were made in this category in FY18-19. For FY 2020-21, applications will be solicited for Life and Biomedical Sciences and Arts and Humanities.

Nominees for the Presidential Research Scholars awards must be Group 1, tenured, full-time faculty from one of Ohio University’s campuses. Scholars must have been employed by Ohio University for at least three years.

Applications from nominated individuals will be reviewed by the Council for Research, Scholarship and Creative Activity (CRSCA) and previous Presidential Research Scholar recipients, with recommendations for selection given to the Vice President for Research and Creative Activity for final approval.

All faculty of Ohio University may submit nominations; faculty also may self-nominate.

Nominations must be emailed to research@ohio.edu by 4 p.m. on Thursday, April 18, 2019. The email subject heading should state “Presidential Research Scholar Nomination.” Nominated faculty who wish to pursue the Presidential Research Scholars award must submit a full application by 4 p.m. on Thursday, June 13, 2019.
