Dr. Katherine Schultz Research Recognition Award Call-out: April 1 Deadline

Two (2) awards will be granted annually to a UPEIFA member, staff member, and/or a volunteer who has made an outstanding contribution to the research enterprise at UPEI.

From Dr. Schultz's letter that established the fund:

The research success of an institution rests fundamentally on the excellence, dedication and insights of its researchers and their teams of collaborators, trainees, students, and technicians. However, their success also rests on the work of those who might be labeled the "unsung heroes" of the research enterprise – that is, those whose work behind the scenes and serve to make it all possible – faculty, staff, and volunteers who focus their service on the committees that enable research to proceed; ethics, policy development, and internal grants. For example: those who bring their expertise to ensuring legislative, regulatory and best practice compliance; and those who keep the accounts, fine tune the proposals, develop contracts, and steer strategic initiatives that enable research success. These contributions could include the design or development of a new research policy or procedures, chairing, or being a member of, a compliance committee during a particularly demanding time, providing key support to the development of institutional proposals for significant research funding, and/or continuously going above and beyond to enhance the research experience at the university.
