About the Awards

These awards recognise outstanding research supervisors and the important role they play in our research achievements and in supporting our talented Research Higher Degree candidates.

Each Faculty and Academic Division conduct an award process. The Faculty/Academic Division award may be presented to a team of supervisors.

The Faculty and Division winners will then be forwarded for consideration for the Vice-Chancellor’s Award for Research Supervisor of the Year.


Prizes

Winners of a Faculty/ Academic Division category will receive $2,000 (paid as salary, travel or research funds) and a certificate.


The winner of the Vice-Chancellor’s Award for Research Supervisor of the Year will receive $10,000 (paid as a research grant held at the University of Newcastle for the following calendar year) and a certificate.

If a team receives an award the prize money will be divided amongst the team. The awards will be presented at the annual staff awards.
