Nominations open for Myron H. and Anna Atwood Faculty Fellow Award

Nominations are now being accepted for the Myron H. and Anna Atwood Faculty Fellow Award. This award recognizes faculty in the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences (CALS) for excellence in teaching and provides support for continued efforts in the area of instruction.

The award is open to all tenure-track and tenured faculty with at least a 25% appointment in CALS. Tenured faculty must have met or exceeded expectations in all areas during their most recent post-tenure review. Current or past recipients are not eligible. Only one nomination per department will be accepted.

The Myron H. and Anna Atwood Faculty Fellow Award provides the recipient with a $20,000 one-time award to support teaching-related expenses, such as graduate teaching assistants and summer salary. Funds may not be used to attend national society meetings, purchase capital equipment, or to renovate university facilities. Funds must be spent within two years; unused funds revert to the dean.
