Interdisciplinary Scholarship Awards

The Vice President for Research is soliciting nominations for the FY21 Interdisciplinary Scholarship Awards. Two awards will be given that recognize either a faculty member or research team whose interdisciplinary scholarship has had a major impact nationally and/or internationally, or who have demonstrated their potential to do so. One individual faculty member and one group of scholars will be recognized. Each awardee will receive a plaque of recognition and funding in the amounts below to support the recipient’s research and/or scholarship program. In addition, each awardee will be featured on the Research Wall sponsored by the Office of the VP for Research in the Lory Student Center. The award will be presented at the spring Celebrate! Colorado State Awards Ceremony.

Nominations are due by 5:00 p.m. MT on January 25, 2021 and must be submitted through the CSU InfoReady Review system. The system will not accept nominations after 5:00 p.m. and no late nominations will be accepted.
