The Clara M. and Peter L. Scott Faculty Award for Excellence in Engineering Education
The Clara M. and Peter L. Scott Faculty Award for Excellence in Engineering Education was established in 1987 by Clara M. and Peter L. Scott (B.S. Electrical Engineering '49 DRH '95). Recipient of this award will be honored at the annual College of Engineering Faculty Awards Banquet.
The award will be made to a senior professor in engineering or architecture in the College of Engineering who has distinguished himself or herself nationally or internationally. The award will be based on excellence in teaching and the qualitative aspects of teaching with emphasis on effective innovation, and for outstanding fundamental or applied research contributions (in scope and/or originality) in one or more areas of endeavor. The award will be presented to an individual and may be awarded only once in a faculty member's career. Under unique circumstances, a team may be nominated for and receive the award.
One nomination may be submitted by each department in the college. The nomination packet will include 1.) A letter of nomination, 2.) Supporting materials, 3.) One to three letters of support, and 4.) The nominee's curriculum vitae. Nomination letters should be brief and to the point, yet include sufficient information to permit a rational selection. At least one letter from an external source, solicited without input from the nominee, is required. The total number of supporting letters (including the external letter) should not exceed three.
Reminder: The nomination letter must be two pages or less, and be on college or department letterhead. Include a proposed citation (25 words or less) at the bottom of the nomination letter. The committee may disqualify nominations that do not meet this requirement.
The Selection Committee will consist of the College of Engineering Honors and Awards Committee, Dean of the College of Engineering, one or more representatives from the College of Engineering faculty, one or more representatives external to the University, and one graduate and one undergraduate member of the engineering student body. Final decision will be made by the Dean of the College of Engineering.
The application materials need to be submitted electronically and must be submitted by January 10, 2020.
