FY23 Research Spot Awards Program

The Spot Awards program at UC Berkeley allows supervisors, managers, and other campus individuals to recognize special projects and accomplishments of non-represented and CX represented staff employees during the period May 1, 2022 -  April 30, 2023.

Please submit nominations for Vice Chancellor for Research (VCR) units only using the online Research Spot Awards nomination form. To prevent delays, ensure that you have communicated with the nominee's supervisor prior to your submission; supervisors will receive an email request to approve the nomination. Please direct any questions to Elise Magno, via email.

The Research STAR committee, and an internal VCRO panel will review and process Spot Award nominations as we receive them.
