Nominations for the Robert A. Muh Award in the School of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences are now being accepted. The award will honor an MIT graduate who has made a significant contribution to education, scholarship and/or academic administration in the Social Sciences.
The Muh Award was established in 2000 on the 50th anniversary of the School of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences (SHASS) to honor an MIT graduate for noteworthy contributions to education, scholarship, performance, academic administration or arts management in the humanities, arts or social sciences. The award rotates among the three major learning areas in SHASS. The award includes a $5,000 honorarium and will require the recipient to deliver a public lecture at MIT when the award is presented.
The deadline for nominations is June 1. Letters of nomination, including a letter in support of the nominee and his or her curriculum, should be sent to the Muh Award Selection Committee in Room E51-255, 77 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge, MA 02139-4307 or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
