Emerging Scholar Award

The OSU chapter of the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi has established the Emerging Scholar Faculty Award in order to recognize non-tenured faculty (including professional faculty) for outstanding research or creative activity in his or her field of study. This award is open to faculty in the early stages of their professional careers. The award consists of a plaque and first year membership dues to both the local OSU Chapter and the National Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi.

The award is open to all non-tenured faculty (including professional faculty) from all academic units within OSU (all campuses). Faculty need not be members of Phi Kappa Phi at the time of nomination. Nominees must be non-tenured faculty holding a tenure-track/professional appointment at the rank of assistant professor/equivalent. A majority of the work being evaluated must have been accomplished at OSU. Nominations are solicited from members of the OSU chapter during fall quarters. The winner also receives a plaque when inducted into membership at the Initiation Banquet held in the winter quarter.
