Faculty of Science Excellence Award Fund

There are many qualities that drive McGill’s Faculty of Science to greatness, including its top-notch students and committed professors. But another essential factor ensures a satisfying experience at McGill – the exceptional administrative and support staff. Day in and day out, administrative personnel see that the professors, scientists and students receive superior and responsive attention. The Faculty simply couldn’t run without them.

Recognizing their invaluable contributions, the Faculty of Science determined early on that recognizing their administrative and support staff was important. As a result, the Faculty of Science Excellence Award was created. It has been awarded every year since 1991, acknowledging the employees whose performance and contribution to the department, faculty and university has been truly outstanding.

To date, funds to support the Award have been gathered each year. But now, the Faculty of Science has established a “featured project” for faculty and staff solicitation purposes. To enshrine and acknowledge support and administrative staff in the Faculty of Science, the new Faculty of Science Excellence Award Fund has been created to ensure the award exists into perpetuity. 

Recipients of the award receive a framed certificate, and their name is engraved on a plaque in the Faculty of Science reception area. They also receive a cash award. Recently, the value of the award has ranged from $500 to $1,000. The Faculty of Science Excellence Award Fund will ensure that the hard work of the administrative and support staff will be rewarded in perpetuity. Your gift is important because it is an investment in the spirit of excellence at the Faculty of Science.
