The University of Toronto Alumni Association (UTAA) is now accepting nominations and applications for the 2006 Awards of Excellence program which includes the Faculty Award, Chancellor's Award, Joan E. Foley Quality of Student Experience Award, the Ludwik and Estelle Jus Memorial Human Rights Prize, the John H. Moss Scholarship, the Adel Sedra Distinguished Graduate Award and our two newest awards – the Jon Dellandrea Award  for International Students and the Carolyn Tuohy Award in Public Policy.  These awards and scholarships are designed to honour outstanding students, faculty and staff members of the University.  In addition, this year, we are also incorporating the Northrop Frye Awards under the Awards of Excellence banner.  The Northrop Frye Awards honour one individual faculty member who demonstrates exemplary and innovative methods of linking teaching and research and one Department or Division within a Faculty or School for its role in encouraging faculty members to develop these linkages.   Nominations and applications will be accepted until January 30, 2006. 

We encourage you to consider submitting nominations for these awards and recommend to qualified students that they apply for the scholarships. 

All recipients will be honoured at the awards ceremony on May 9th, 2006 in the Great Hall of Hart House.

The Awards of Excellence program allows us to recognize and celebrate the achievements and contributions of exemplary members of the University community.  Thank you in advance for your help in promoting excellence at the University of Toronto.  For further information about nomination and application procedures, please contact Linda Wells in the Division of University Advancement at 416-978-6536 or e-mail linda.wells@utoronto.ca.
