We are excited to announce a new award that has been created to build recognition for APRA-IN members within their own organizations, cultivate prestige amongst their APRA peers, and to develop credibility for advancement in their career. The award will recognize a member who has successfully lead a project within their organization in collaboration with other departments or organizations.
The application process will require that you describe the problem or situation that you were facing within your organization. An explanation of how the problem or situation was resolved or improved, and the impact it had on the organization or the field of research is required. You should describe any collaboration that was done with other departments or organizations and the lessons learned from the project.
This is a chance to share your success with other researchers faced with similar challenges. We hope you will consider nominating yourself or a peer who has lead a project. The winner will receive a certificate for display and free attendance to an APRA-IN function in 2016. The application can be found on the APRA-IN website under the "Members Only" tab (look for "Project Award Application") or click here. Please submit your application to Cathy Spieth, APRA-IN awards committee chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also call Cathy Spieth at 317-921-1346 if you have any questions.
