Carleton University Research Prizes

Established in 2013, these internal prizes recognize efforts that go beyond the specific research programs of individual faculty. They are for activities and initiatives that are integral to continuing to support and enhancing the vibrant research culture at Carleton as they build a broad and sustainable foundation that supports research excellence, student engagement, and Carleton’s impact on real-world issues.

The Faculty-to-Faculty Mentoring and Building Connections Awards are sponsored by the Vice-President (Research and International), and the Research and Academic Impact Award is jointly sponsored by the VPRI and the Provost and Vice-President (Academic).
