WFPA seeking nominations

The Women Faculty and Professional Association is seeking nominations to honor U.Va. 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 a female employee who has returned to school to obtain a degree.

The deadline for nominations for both awards has been extended to March 26. All women employed by the University are eligible for both awards. 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 completed package to the Selection Committee, c/o Beth White, School of Nursing, Box 800782. Incomplete packets cannot be reviewed. Re-submission of previous nominations is 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 (associate, undergraduate or graduate).
