Provost's Award in Engaged Scholarship

Please note that we are not adjudicating this award for the 2023/24 year, as we are considering revisions to the award. In the meantime, we encourage you to review and consider applying for an advocacy and activism award and/or a REACH Award.

The Provost’s Award in Engaged Scholarship (PAES) celebrates the integration of outstanding UVic scholarship, teaching and community engagement. The title of Provost’s Engaged Scholar is awarded to tenured faculty members who have achieved great distinction as community engaged scholars.

The award was established in 2014 to celebrate faculty members' commitment to community-engaged work and the integration of community throughout their research, teaching and service.

Nomination criteria and procedures

Nominations are open to UVic tenured faculty members. Awardees must hold that status for the duration of the award (five years as Provost’s Engaged Scholar).

Nominations will be evaluated on the basis of a dossier documenting community-engaged scholarship. The dossier is to include:

  • Personal statement;
  • A letter of nomination and support from the nominee's Dean;
  • At least one letter of reference from a community partner; and
  • Nominee’s current CV.
