  1. a curriculum vitae of the nominee,
  2. an endorsement letter by the chair or dean, and
  3. one research publication, book, article, or other work that the applicant considers his/her best achievement.

Criteria for the award are originality and excellence of the nominee's publications, especially where research has contributed significantly to the academic program of the department or college.

Nominations must be received by the Secretary of the Francis Alison Society, Dr. Donald L. Sparks, 153A Townsend Hall or, before July 1st.
