George Rieveschl Jr. Award for Creative and/or Scholarly Works


Each year the Rieveschl Award for Creative and/or Scholarly Works is given to one member of the University of Cincinnati full-time faculty. This award, in the amount of $2,000, was set up through the generosity of Dr. George Rieveschl to recognize distinguished achievements of national and international acclaim in the areas of scholarly and/or creative work. The award is given for a particular work or for the sum of a faculty member’s accomplishments, with emphasis on work carried out at the University of Cincinnati. The Rieveschl Award Committee for Creative and/or Scholarly Works, a committee serving under the auspices of the Faculty Senate, chooses the awardee from among the nominees. Written nominations are now being solicited for this award. Faculty may nominate themselves or colleagues, and nominations from previous years may be resubmitted.

All nominations (including re-submissions) should be fully documented and include evidence of the impact of the nominee's work. The nominator must submit a nominating letter, the curriculum vitae of the nominee and the nomination form (doc). The nominating letter should make a case for the excellence of the candidate’s work. It is the responsibility of the nominator to include internal and external letters in support of the nomination. These should be recent and relevant to the award. Letters from outside the United States are welcome. Supporting materials should comprise the broadest possible samples of work, such as articles, books, critical reviews, and documentation of performances, exhibitions and presentations.  

Note change beginning in fall 2016: The nomination form, nominating letter, CV and supporting letters should be submitted electronically by the nominator as a single pdf file.  Supporting materials may be submitted as hard copies or physical media as relevant to the discipline of the nominee.
