Nominate a Professor for the Elizabeth Hurlock Beckman Award Trust

Wells Fargo is offering $25,000 to professors who inspire their students to change the world. Gail McKnight Beckman created the Beckman Award to benefit teachers who have inspired their former students to make a significant contribution to society. The award is given to current or former academic faculty members who have inspired their former students to “create an organization which has demonstrably conferred a benefit on the community at large.” Alternatively, the academic faculty member must have inspired their former students to “establish on a lasting basis a concept, procedure, or movement of comparable benefit to the community at large.”

The deadline is July 12, 2013.
