WFPA seeks a few good women

The Women Faculty and Professional Association is seeking nominations to honor women with two annual awards: the Woman of Achievement Award, which recognizes a woman who has led the way in improving the status of women or who is outstanding in her role as a manager, organizer, researcher or teacher; and the Aspiring Woman Award, given to to a female U.Va. employee who has returned to school to obtain a degree (associate, undergraduate or graduate). Nominations for both awards are due March 6 by noon.

All women employed by the University are eligible for both awards, which will be given to the winners at the WFPA spring luncheon.

Nomination packages for the Woman of Achievement award should include a letter of nomination, a summary of accomplishments (e.g., current resumé, curriculum vitae, or summary statement), and two letters of recommendation. Please provide specific details related to the nominee's professional achievements, including her role in the promotion of women's issues at the University.

Send the package to the selection committee in care of Karen Allen, Box 262, Environmental Health and Safety (or call her at 982-4913). Resubmissions of previous nominations are encouraged.

The Aspiring Woman Award is an annual $250 scholarship. To be eligible, the woman must have been a U.Va. employee, full- or part-time, for at least one year, and be enrolled in a degree program. An application, recommendation letter from a faculty adviser and a copy of the applicant's most recent grades are required. For an application, call Kathy Sudduth at 924-5184.
