Feb '12
International Cotton Advisory Committee (ICAC) Researcher of the Year program is entering its fourth year. The ICAC is now inviting applications for the “ICAC Researcher of the Year, 2012." The closing date for receipt of applications is March 31, 2012. All information about the program, including where and how to apply, is available on the ICAC web page under “ICAC Researcher of the Year."

A team of five judges headed by an internationally recognized university professor handles the evaluation process. The judges are anonymous to the ICAC and change every two years. Applications go directly to the panel of judges.

The ICAC initiated the Cotton Researcher of the Year Award in 2009. Researchers from universities and public sector research organizations are eligible to apply for the award directly or through their heads of institutions. In addition, colleagues can make a nomination on behalf of a fellow researcher. Researchers from all disciplines of cotton production research, including ginning, fiber quality and textile research, are eligible for the award. Researchers from non-member governments of the ICAC are not eligible for this award.

The ICAC awards the winner with a shield, an honorarium of US$1,000.00, a certificate, and the title “ICAC Cotton Researcher of the Year." The selected researcher will be invited to make a special presentation at the 71st Plenary Meeting of the ICAC to be held in Interlaken, Switzerland from October 8-11, 2012. If the recipient is unable to attend the plenary meeting, the shield, honorarium and certificate will be mailed. Researchers are encouraged to apply for the program.
