Awards & Distinctions

The Awards & Distinctions portfolio in Western Research revolves around recognizing and promoting the scholarly achievements of outstanding Western faculty in all disciplines and at all career stages. Many awards are associated with substantial monetary prizes and all are associated with significant prestige. Success in these programs raises the profile of individuals, their departments, their Faculties, and the university. This is accomplished by:

  • communicating information about award opportunities and deadlines
  • liaising with award agencies
  • utilizing Western's foundation of research excellence and resources
  • coordinating submission of award nomination and application packages
  • publicizing and celebrating success

A non-comprehensive list of award opportunities, along with program details, is available here. If planning to apply or nominate, please ensure that your Associate Dean (Research) and Department Chair are made aware of your intentions.
