Call for nomination: Saint Paul University Distinguished Researcher

The Distinguished Researcher designation recognizes a member of the Saint Paul University teaching staff for outstanding contributions to university research.


Full-time and part-time members of the Saint Paul University faculty are eligible for the award.


Only current students or recent graduates may nominate candidates, based on an interview with the faculty member that highlights their research abilities and achievements.

The interview may focus on the publication of a scientific book or article, a major conference in the candidate’s field of expertise, a recent research grant, or the candidate’s overall career.

Following the interview, the student must submit a presentation in support of the candidate to Recruitment and Communications Services, which will publish and highlight the best presentations. The presentation may be in traditional or digital format (e.g., written submission, comic strip or animation, video or video game, song, etc.).


Each term, Recruitment and Communications Services will select one candidate as Distinguished Researcher. Nominations must be submitted to the Director, Recruitment and Communications Services, Fidèle Lavigne, at

The same student or the same researcher may be chosen more than once, but not in the same year.

At the end of the academic year, the Honorary Degrees Committee, which reports to the Senate, will evaluate the presentations selected by the Recruitment and Communications Services and select the best one. The student who prepared the winning presentation will receive a $500 scholarship.


The grand prize winner will be announced at spring convocation.
