NIFA is seeking nominations for the NIFA Hall of Fame, which was created for the agency’s five-year anniversary.
Inductees into the NIFA Hall of Fame have worked, coordinated, or supported activities exemplifying NIFA’s synergy of excellence in any combination of research, education, and extension approaches on local, regional, national, or international levels.
Inductees have also demonstrated a measurable and positive impact on the lives of citizens and NIFA’s mission to invest in and advance agricultural research, education, and extension to solve societal challenges.
Nominations will be evaluated based on three weighted areas:
- measurable impact on NIFA;
- synergy of research, education, and/or extension; and
- endorsement/letters of support.
Nominations must consist of a completed nomination form and up to three endorsements/letters of support. The NIFA Hall of Fame Nomination Form and NIFA Hall of Fame background and criteria are located on the NIFA website. Nominations must be emailed to Kimberly Whittet no later than Aug. 15.
Hall of Fame inductees will be recognized at the annual NIFA Day of Appreciation tentatively scheduled for October in Washington, DC. NIFA will pay travel expenses for each inductee.
