The new President's Frontier Award of $250,000 will be given to a full-time faculty member in any division who has demonstrated exceptional scholarly achievement and for whom the award will significantly expand his or her prominence as an intellectual leader within his or her relevant field of study. The ideal candidate will be a midcareer, full-time faculty member.
The award is not intended to serve as a lifetime achievement award but rather an investment in future potential. The deadline to nominate is Nov. 10. Details and an online nomination form are available here.
