Individuals eligible for nomination include all UFV “B” faculty, including lab instructors, who have completed their probationary period, or other instructors who have a cumulative equivalent of two (2) years teaching time at UFV.
Award winners receive a plaque with the award recipient’s name and the year on it, a framed certificate, as well as a research grant of $2,500. The grant will be administered by the university and accessible for a maximum of two years.
Nomination packages should be compiled and organized formally for submission. It is the responsibility of the nominator to collect all required documentation and deliver it to the Secretariat office before January 12, 2018.
