Nominations for the 2010 Ireland Distinguished Visiting Scholar Prize now are being accepted.  The purpose of the Ireland Visiting Scholar Prize is to bring to the UAB campus outstanding scholars in the arts and sciences to present a public lecture and participate in other campus activities.  The prize carries a cash award which is made possible by an endowment established by Caroline P. and the late Charles W. Ireland.

Nominees should be individuals of distinction in the liberal arts and sciences who will interact profitably with UAB faculty and students and present that specialty in a way that will be of interest to the entire academic community.

Nominations are due by Jan.16, 2009; send them to the Ireland Visiting Scholar Committee by campus mail or personal delivery to the Administration Building Room 374C, +0103, or FAX to 975-7677. Direct questions to 996-7190.
