The Community Scholar Award

The Community Scholar Award recognizes University of Alberta academic staff members who not only excel in their scholarship, but who also readily and frequently bring that scholarship into the community—through such activities as volunteer work with groups linked to their field of study, public speaking engagements, school visits, and media interviews. They are committed to translating their area of expertise to the everyday citizen, and demonstrate the values of the University of Alberta through their community scholarship. 

Nominees must:

  • Be an individual or team of academic staff member(s) who are tensure track faculty, sessional instructors, or lecturers.
  • Demonstrate exceptional service to the university through the impact of their community service and involvement, which is not a part of their regular university duties.
