Bullock Prize Nominations Sought
The University of Alaska Foundation is pleased to announce that nominations are now being accepted for the 2012 Edith R. Bullock Prize for Excellence.
The purpose of the prize is to recognize and reward an individual who has demonstrated excellence in support of the University of Alaska. Any individual, regardless of University affiliation, is eligible for nomination for the prize, which carries with it a $20,000 award for the recipient. The selection committee will base its decision primarily on two criteria:
- The extent to which the individual demonstrates a specific, definable, notable accomplishment which benefits the University (establishment of an academic or administrative program, the development of a course, the successful completion of a project, the achievement of a research discovery, the provision of a needed university or public service, the achievement of an educational goal, the publication of a thesis or paper, the achievement of national recognition, etc).
- The extent to which the individual demonstrates general support of the University either through service, advocacy, philanthropy, etc.
Nominations must be completed on the Bullock Nomination form and can also be found on the Foundation Website. Nominations received in other formats will not be accepted. Only complete nominations will be considered.
Offices receiving this notice may independently solicit, collect and coordinate nominations at their MAU. All nominations from all sources must be received in the Foundation Office on or before the December 2, 2011 deadline, to be considered for the 2012 prize. Nominations received by the Foundation after that date will be considered for next year’s prize.
