Michigan Tech Research Award

The Michigan Tech Research Award offers an opportunity for an individual to be recognized for outstanding achievement in research. For the purpose of the Award, the term 'research' is to be interpreted broadly to mean scholarly endeavor. The Award should not only be an honor to the person so recognized, but also symbolic of Michigan Tech's high standard of research achievement.

The nomination should be based on the impact that a person has made toward advancement of knowledge, or the state of scholarship as evidenced by either a sustained productive scholarly endeavor or a single noteworthy breakthrough in research results. Your nomination should be accompanied by supporting materials as indicated below.

Please send your nomination electronically in PDF format to Cathy Codere (cmbanfie@mtu.edu) no later than 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 13, 2014.
