Scholarly Awards offered by the Society

CALL FOR NOMINATIONS

Each year the CSMB offers multiple Research and Student awards. Details of these awards are provided by clicking on the individual links indicated in the column at left. Some awards are offered in alternate years, but most are available every year. The CSMB invites nominations for these awards from its members and other interested parties, with results to be announced at our 2020 Annual Conference.

The CSMB acknowledges the body of evidence that clearly demonstrates inherent and implicit bias in various aspects of awards processes (e.g. Witteman et al. 2019, The Lancet) and commits to ensuring that those evaluating awards fully understand bias and take it into account while considering all nominations.

The deadline for receipt of these nominations for the 2020 Conference is October 31, 2019. Please send nominations with documentation by email to:

Review process

The Chair of Awards Committee will send applications to the committee members who will rank order the applications independently and submit their recommendations to the Chair. The Chair will present the recommendations of the Awards committee to the CSMB Board for final selection. Those members in a conflict of interest position will be excluded from the review process.

The Award Committee may ask for an additional reference letter for the nominee from a scientist of similar rank who works in the field of the nominee’s research area outside of Canada.
