How to Apply

The Vice-President (Research) encourages nominations for this prestigious award, and will serve as nominator for those nominees recommended by the Awards Advisory Committee. If you wish to nominate a colleague or to be considered for VPR nomination, please alert your Associate Dean (Research) and submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) by the internal deadline. 

An Expression of Interest will include:

  • A draft letter (two-three pages) addressed to the VPR  which outlines how you/your nominee meets the criteria outlined on Sloan Research Fellowships.
  • An up-to-date CV (up to 10 pages) for nominee (and each member of the team, if applicable);
