The Faculty Scholar Lecturer Award, established in the Spring of 1998, is a faculty-administered program designed to honor an outstanding faculty member for research, publication, or other original work in their field. The person selected for this honor will deliver a lecture, or an appropriate presentation, to the University community. The award carries an honorarium of $500, and a budget of $500 for expenses.

All full-time faculty members are eligible. Nominations by self, students, colleagues, or department heads are encouraged.

Only research activity accomplished during the previous calendar year will be considered for this award. Original research that resulted in publication in a refereed journal, a book, a juried show, or an invited performance will be considered. If you would like to nominate someone, please send:
  • Letter of recommendation describing the individual's research
  • Updated résumé or vita
  • Other supporting documentation, which may include peer assessment from outside JSU


Nominations are to be submitted to the chair of the Faculty Honors Committee by March 21, 2014. Please direct any questions to the chair.
