Selection Process

Each year a new committee is chosen to review nominations and select award recipients.

The committee evaluates the nominations based on how well they address the questions posed in the nomination form and the criteria of the specific award category.

Committee members include previous award recipients, support, service, sponsored research, and administrative staff members, and faculty. Every effort is made to create a diverse group with representatives from many different schools and departments across the Institute. Committee members are not permitted to submit nominations and are not eligible to receive an award during the time they serve.

About the Process

The committee evaluates the nominations based on how well they address the questions posed in the nomination form and the criteria of the specific award category. In some cases, committee members may speak to "additional contacts" given on the nomination form to gain further insight. The committee then meets to make its final selections.
