The University of Guelph offers two internal awards recognizing research excellence at early and later career stage. Research excellence is recognized as scholarly output that is demonstrably internationally impactful within the nominee’s discipline.
Research Excellence Awards highlight research achievements of recently tenured faculty members, to raise the profile of individuals who would be considered for future external recognition.
Research Leadership Chairs recognize research excellence of mid- to late-career-stage faculty who have proven records of distinguished and sustained scholarly work. Research Leadership Chairs are prominent researchers who have received significant recognition on both a national and international level.
