Vaughnie Lindsay New Investigator Award

Dr. Stephen Hansen, Graduate School Dean Emeritus, established the Lindsay Research Professorship Endowment that funds the award in honor of Dr. Vaughnie Lindsay, who served as graduate dean from 1973 until 1986 and was responsible for creating much of the infrastructure that supports faculty research and scholarly activity. Faculty and the emeriti faculty at the time of the award's conception donated the funds to endow the award.

Those wishing to help support new investigators through the Vaughnie Lindsay Award may make a donation to the Graduate School section of the endowment at:


Eligible applicants must have earned appropriate terminal degrees in their disciplines and have regular full-time tenure track faculty positions at the Assistant Professor level. Eligible junior faculty may apply any time after successful completion of their third year at SIUE and before promotion to Associate Professor.
