Research Prizes and Awards

At Queen's, we actively promote the success of our researchers by helping them attract competitive awards. 

There are a variety of award "types" available:

  • internal awards offered through Queen's, including the Prizes for Excellence in Research
  • external awards offered through the tri-council granting agencies and other national or international organizations,
  • disciplinary, and interdisciplinary awards

Some award competitions solicit institutional nominations by invitation only, and others limit the number of nominations that may be put forward from the university. A variety of nominations are open.

While our primary goal is the submission of these types of awards, we will offer advice and assistance whenever possible to individual departments in the submission of nomination packages for disciplinary prizes.

For more information on the nomination process, please contact the Coordinator of Research Activities and Communications.
