    Nominee's Information
    Nomination
    The nomination statement should provide context for the importance of the nominated student's awards, publications, and research in general.
    Note: One letter is required. A second letter is optional.

    OPTIONAL:  Statement from nominee. No more than two pages in length; the nominee should discuss the significance of her/his research to the relevant field of study. In addition, if the nominee has taught, the statement could include a discussion of his/her pedagogical philosophy. The statement should not replicate the CV; rather, it should interpret it by contextualizing specific aspects of work in a larger intellectual framework (roughly equivalent to a faculty member’s personal statement in a renewal/promotion package).
