Gerard J. Mangone Young Scholars Award nominations are open
12:48 p.m., July 15, 2014--The Francis Alison Society has announced its 19th annual competition for the Gerard J. Mangone Young Scholars Award.
The award is given to one-tenure track assistant professor at the University of Delaware who has shown extraordinary distinction through research and publications, especially where such research benefits teaching and the academic program.
Nominations are made through departmental chairpersons or a dean or director in other units. Applications must include a curriculum vitae plus one book, article or other work that the nominee believes to be his or her best work, and the endorsement of the chairperson, dean or director.
The Francis Alison Society is composed of 29 professors who have received the highest award given to a faculty member at the University. A committee of the Society, with the advice and participation of all members, will judge the applicants. This award is one of the most distinguished honors in the University.
The Young Scholars Award includes a ceremonial recognition of the scholar at a special University occasion, a generous cash award, and an honorary plaque presented in the fall of 2014.
All nominations, through departmental chairpersons, or deans or directors, should be submitted to Donald L. Sparks, chair of the Francis Alison Society, at the Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Laboratory (ISE Lab), 221 Academy Street, Suite 250A, before Aug. 31.
