Nominations for AWFA Awards

The Association of Women Faculty  and Administrators (AWFA) invites you to nominate candidates for three annual awards to be presented at the awards breakfast scheduled for Thursday, April 19 at 8 a.m. at the Sheraton University City Hotel. Nominations are invited for the following awards:

The Lenore Williams Award: In 1984, AWFA received a bequest from Lenore Williams, wife of former provost Edwin B. Williams. In her honor, AWFA established an award to be given each year to an outstanding female scholar or leader. Preference will be given to a distinguished woman, affiliated with Penn, whose contributions extend within and beyond our campus.

The Alice Paul Awards: Named in honor of Dr. Alice Paul--suffragist leader, founder of the National Women's Party, author of the Equal Rights Amendment, and internationally known humanitarian--the awards are presented to undergraduate or graduate women in recognition of their outstanding service to women. We wish to honor those who made contributions to women in the Penn community.

The Robert E. Davies Award: This award is in honor of the late feminist and distinguished Penn scholar. The award will be bestowed on an individual involved in social change.
