Chancellor’s Distinguished Research Award
The Chancellor’s Distinguished Research Award annually recognizes outstanding scholarly accomplishments of members of the University of Pittsburgh’s faculty, divided by two stages:
- Senior scholar awardees will have compiled a substantial and continuing record of outstanding research and scholarly activity. Nominees must have achieved preeminence in their field and be of international reputation, as evidenced in letters of support from national and international leaders in the field. Referees cannot be mentors or current colleagues of the nominees.
- Junior scholar awardees will have demonstrated great potential as scholars as evidenced by the exceptional quality of their independent contributions and will have achieved national or international recognition. Candidates for this award are required to have received their highest degree no more than 12 years before the time of nomination.
Nominations will be considered within three broad categories: arts, humanities, social sciences, and related professions; science, technology, engineering and mathematics; and medicine and health sciences.
Each awardee will receive a cash prize of $2,000 and a grant of $3,000 to support their teaching and research.
