University Research Awards

The University of Guelph has grown to become one of Canada’s top comprehensive, research-intensive universities. As a research-intensive institution, the University places scholarly excellence at the core of our mission. We promote our established research strengths while exploring new opportunities in an environment that promotes excellence, partnership, diversity, and inclusivity. The University of Guelph is proud to offer two internal awards recognizing research excellence at early and later career stage.

Research Excellence Awards

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

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.
