Awards & Honours

Research recognition is a key element of the research lifecycle, as it helps raise the profile of your work and ensure that it reaches both scholarly and public audiences. Major awards often include additional funding to extend your research program.

University of Toronto faculty who receive awards are requested to report the award to the VPRI and their academic division via the Faculty Award Reporting Form. Knowing about awards allows us to arrange timely recognition and communications, informs us about successes, opportunities and areas of support for awards and honours, and enables more complete analysis of award trajectories for our faculty.
