In each category, candidates were reviewed based on past and current research accomplishments, including criteria such as publications, presentations, successful grantsmanship, serving as a peer reviewer, maintenance of an active graduate and/or undergraduate program, and other competitive research awards. The Innovation & Entrepreneurship award further required demonstrated innovative thinking or research findings that had promising commercial potential as well as a concept that had progressed beyond the theoretical stage to the applied stage.
“Each year, the reviewers for these awards are presented with the challenge of choosing just one winner in each category from a very talented group of faculty,” said Laura Jenski, Ph.D., vice president for research at USD. “USD is honored to recognize these deserving faculty members for their continued excellence in their research endeavors.”
Each award recipient receives a $3,000 grant and a plaque. The President’s Awards for Research Excellence for Early-Mid Career Faculty and Established Faculty, and the President’s Award for Research Innovation & Entrepreneurship are awarded annually and open to USD faculty in each of the three categories.
