Albert E. Levy Award

Deadline Extended

Levy Award Nominations accepted through December 3, 2018.

The Albert E. Levy Award for Scientific Research was established to recognize the contributions of Emory faculty members to the advancement of scientific knowledge. It was created by Edith Levy Elsas, a civic and academic activist, while she was a member of Emory University Board of Visitors in memory of her father, Albert E. Levy. The award is overseen by the University Research Committee. Each year, the University Research Committee accepts nominations from the Faculty, at large, for junior and senior faculty candidates to recognize outstanding work in their respective fields of research.  The University Research Committee co-chairs select the award recipients based upon reviews of the nominations by the previous year's Levy Award recipients.

Originally overseen by the Emory University's Sigma Xi chapter, which encouraged "scientific research communication" across multiple disciplines, including mathematics, chemical, physical and the biological sciences. The award program became inactive for a period after the Sigma Xi chapter of Emory became inactive. At the request of the benefactor, the Levy Awards were reinstated in the year 2000 under the oversight of the University Research Committee.
