Nominations Open for 2021 Outstanding Employees of the Year Awards

Supporting each Principal Investigator is a team of researchers, project managers, professionals, and support staff. One (or more) of them could be our next outstanding employee awardee!

The RCUH Outstanding Employees of the Year Awards encourage, recognize, and reward RCUH employees who have made demonstrable, significant, and exemplary contributions to their project during the past fiscal year (July 2020–June 2021) or years.


Three award categories are available:

  1. Researcher/Project Manager/Professional (exempt status position)
  2. Project Support Staff (non-exempt status position)
  3. Team (2-5 staff in exempt and/or non-exempt Regular-status positions)


  • $1,000 to the first place awardee in each category
  • $500 to the second place awardee in each category
  • Team awards for first and second place will be shared equally among team members

All nominees and awardees will be announced in the fall.
