Distinguished Research Award


Through the Dr. Sherrill Brown Distinguished Research Award, we recognize faculty members who have made notable contributions to research and creative activities at MacEwan University. If you would like to put forward your contributions, please apply for this award.

MacEwan tenured or tenure track faculty members can apply for the Distinguished Research Award as outlined in the Distinguished Research Award Policy.

This award's eligibility requires three letters of support from professional peers and a sustained record of peer-reviewed publications, creative/artistic work, or undergraduate research leadership. If you are a new investigator, research achievements of significant impact will be considered. Members of the Distinguished Research Award Selection Committee cannot apply for the award in the year they are on the committee.

If you would like to apply for the award, please review the policy that governs the award to ensure that you are eligible. Then gather three letters of support from professional peers and provide a research dossier in your application in PeopleSoft.

The Provost presents the award at the spring convocation.
