The Barrick Scholar Awards are designed to recognize faculty members who have established a record of distinguished research or have demonstrated excellence in the area of creative activity. These awards are funded by an endowment from the late Marjorie Barrick and are made following recommendations of a committee of former recipients. The Provost’s Office selects the final honorees.
These awards are based principally on the quality and quantity of research publication or creative activity, which is judged to be extraordinary and distinguished. Only full-time tenured or tenure-track faculty who have completed at least three years of full-time employment at UNLV prior to the application deadline are eligible for these awards. Candidates must be nominated by an NSHE employee.
The call for nominations is announced in the fall each year.
The awards are offered in two categories:
- The Barrick Distinguished Scholar Award, which is presented to faculty members with 10 years of service or more in an academic environment after the terminal degree, carries a $5,000 stipend.
- The Barrick Scholar Award, which is presented to faculty members with fewer than 10 years of service in an academic environment after the terminal degree, carries a $2,500 stipend.
