Please note: Generally, no more than three Barrick Awards will be made in any year, and effective 1999, these awards will not be presented to the same person more than once. If applicants are applying for the Barrick Distinguished Scholar Award after having been selected for the Barrick Scholar Award, a period of at least five years shall have elapsed, and primary consideration will be given to achievements for the period of time following the receipt of the Barrick Scholar Award. In all cases, the committee has the final authority to determine the level of the award.
Those submitting nominations must be NSHE employees. (Self nominations are not accepted.) A one-page formal letter of nomination from a peer, chair, or dean is required. The nominator should notify the nominee and submit the nomination letter to him/her. The nominee should compile all application materials, including the nomination letter and supporting documentation, and submit the application packet by the deadline.
