Selection Procedure

All nominations will be submitted to CII, attention: Kristi Delaney. The deadline for nominations is Monday, April 24, 2017. The nominations will forwarded to the Outstanding CII Researcher Award Panel of Judges. This Panel of Judges will be composed of:
  • Three (3) members of the Funded Studies Committee (1 Owner, 1 Contractor, 1 Academic)
  • One (1) member of the Quality Assurance Team
  • One (1) past academic recipient of this award
  • CII's Associate Director of Funded Studies (chair of the panel)

The panel will select the recipient in accordance with the award criteria. The CII Executive Committee will confirm the selection. This Award will be presented to the individual at the Annual Conference.

In general, this award will be given to one individual at a time for a single research effort; however, in the case of multiple principal investigators on a research team, it may be awarded to more than one individual. This is a highly selective award and is not an annual award; it will only be awarded when there is a viable candidate. Nominees not selected may be considered for future awards.
