Harry Toop Memorial Science for Saskatchewan Lecture Series
Established in 1999, the Harry Toop Memorial Science for Saskatchewan Lecture is an annual public lecture sponsored by a fund set up by retired computer scientist Dr. J.H. Toop to highlight current scientific developments of interest to the Saskatchewan economy.
Organized by the Office of the Vice-President Research, the lectures represent a broad range of topics in applied science, engineering and agriculture.
Up to $4,000 is available to cover costs associated with hosting a public lecture including travel, accommodations, expenses, and honorarium. The invited lecturer is required to give one lecture that will be of interest to both the University community and a public audience. However, nominators are encouraged to arrange other opportunities for the speaker to interact with faculty, graduate students and other members of the University community.
How to Apply:
Nominations must include the following information:
- Letter outlining the nominee’s qualifications, and opportunities and benefits flowing to the University as a result of the visit;
- Nominee’s curriculum vitae;
- Proposed schedule of visit including potential public lecture topic(s), and, if appropriate, other specialized presentations, small-group sessions with faculty and graduate students, or other activities. It is anticipated that visits from external lecturers will be of one to two days in duration; and
- Proposed budget – a maximum of $4,000 may be requested. If visit costs are anticipated to exceed this amount, alternative funding sources must be identified.
A Selection Committee composed of the Vice-President Research, Deans of the Colleges of Arts and Science, Agriculture and Bioresources, and Engineering will adjudicate submissions.
Deadline for receipt of nominations to the Office of the Vice-President Research is April 23, 2010.
