RFA counsellors and librarians, except a member of the Selection Committee, are eligible for these awards. If a member of the Selection Committee is nominated or applies, s/he should either withdraw the nomination/application or step down from the Selection Committee and be replaced. Those receiving the award may not receive the award again for two years (e.g. 2017-2018 recipient receiving an award in Winter 2018 would not be eligible to apply for 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 awards).
For each awards cycle, applications/nominations are based upon the previous academic year’s annual report. (e.g. For the 2017-2018 awards cycle, applications/nominations are based on the May 2017 annual report).
