SURA Distinguished Scientist Award
In 2006, the Board of Trustees established two SURA Distinguished Service Awards: the Distinguished Scientist Award* and the Distinguished Friend of Science Award*. These are presented to individuals who have worked to support the SURA mission “to advance collaborative research and to strengthen the scientific capabilities of its members and nation.” (Awards come with a cash honorarium.)
The Development & Relations Committee will solicit, screen, and select recipients of the SURA Distinguished Scientist Award. Up to two awards, with an honorarium of $5,000 each, will be selected annually for presentation at SURA’s Spring Board of Trustees meeting.
A subcommittee will be selected to screen nominations to honor scientists engaged in outstanding research programs at SURA member institutions. The subcommittee will be deliberative in recognizing alignment with ongoing SURA initiatives, especially when these embrace collaboration. The subcommittee will also be deliberative in recognizing the importance of diversity and inclusion.
Only SURA Board of Trustees and Council of Presidents members are eligible to submit a nomination (limited to one nomination per SURA member institution.)
