Feliks Gross and Henry Wasser Awards 2022

Deadline March 15, 2022 We are now accepting nominations for the 2022 Feliks Gross and Henry Wasser Awards. You can download the nomination form here. If you have any questions please email SDanielsson@gc.cuny.edu

Nota bene: The Feliks Gross and Henry Wasser Awards are presented each year to assistant professors at CUNY in recognition of outstanding research, or potential for such, in the humanities or sciences, including social and life sciences. The awardees are selected among a large group of nominees of assistant professors from all CUNY campuses and receive university wide recognition of their work. The awards are partially supported by the Feliks Gross memorial fund and sponsored by the University Faculty Senate and the CUNY Office of Academic Affairs. The awards are named after two founders of the CUNY Academy for the Humanities and Sciences, and after the awardees are picked, half receive the Feliks Gross award and half receive the Henry Wasser award – this is random and not based on merit. Normally (prepandemic) there are awards ceremonies attended by the Chancellor, or the Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs. Awardees will also give a research talk, virtually or in person, presenting their research. The announcement of call for nominations for the each cycle is sent out in January of the cycle year.

Here are the 2021 Feliks Gross and Henry Wasser Awardees.
