Provost Awards of Excellence

In 2005, the Provost's Awards of Excellence was established to celebrate faculty contributions in teaching, research, service and campus initiatives. Six awards are granted annually culminating in a recognition ceremony in the early fall of each year. Award recipients receive a $1,000 stipend and a crystal recognition sculpture. Candidates must be current Unit A or B faculty.

Clarification: You can include 3 letters of support which don't count towards the 10 page limitation (this is listed in the general guidelines). See above:

Application Limitations:

  • Narrative – no more than five (5) pages, single spaced and single sided – be sure to state the impact on university, students and community.
  • Ten (10) single sided pages of supporting documentation. Whenever applicable, such as in the case of performative/creative works, faculty may submit multi-media materials such as DVDs, CD-ROMs, etc. as part of their supporting documentation. For each DVD or CD-ROM submitted, the number of pages of supporting documentation should be reduced by the number of items represented on the disc. DVD or CD-ROM submissions should not contain multipage works, such as journal articles or books.
  • Each application must contain a stipulated appendix.
  • Up to three (3) letters of support from deans, chairs, peers or students

Therefore, if your letters are from a dean, chair, peer or students, that would not count towards the 10.
