SRAI Awards is a great way to acknowledge and honor individual Research Managers and Research Administrators for their contributions to the profession and to the Society. You probably don’t have to think hard to find peers in your network who do an outstanding job and who you admire; so how about nominating them for an award?
Annual Meeting Scholarship (Nominations open in June)
The Annual Meeting Scholarship was established in 2016 and given for the first time the same year. Through different initiatives by SRAI, AmazonSmile, #GivingTuesday and donations by members, the Annual Meeting Scholarships will allow two (2) recipients to benefit from leading-edge education and networking opportunities offered at the Annual Meeting each year. The Annual Meeting Scholarship includes complimentary registration (pre-conference workshops and/or SRA International membership not included). The scholarship is open to everyone; both existing members and those who intend to join SRA International. Please note that the scholarship covers only the full meeting registration. Full member SRA International dues are the responsibility of the applicant and must be paid in full prior to the meeting. The applicant must NOT be a prior recipient of any type of SRA International award or travel scholarship.
John Robinson Travel Award (Nominations open until May 18th)
The John Robinson Travel award was established in 2012 to support speakers in their early career to further their professional development. The award is given each year and supports travel arrangements for speakers accepted to present at the SRAI Annual Meeting. Through this award, SRA International acknowledges an endowment from John Robinson to honor his contributions to the Society by encouraging active participation of current SRAI members in the conference agenda. The John Robinson Award covers one (1) full Annual Meeting registration and up to $1,700 in funds. Award applications are reviewed and a decision is made on the basis of a successful submission to present at the SRA International Annual Meeting and on financial need. Applications are limited to current SRA International members that are in their early-career (5 years or less in the profession).
These are just two of the awards offered by SRAI. See the full list of awards and nomination requirements at https://www.srainternational.org/srai-awards.
