Awards

In the field of research, many times the research process goes on for years without any major accomplishments.  It is at times like this, that awards can be the boost the researchers' morale and inspire them to continue striving to do their best.

Awards are important for several reasons. First, an award helps to validate what a person is doing and why what they do is important.  It is a basic need to want to be recognized for one’s own accomplishments. Second, when one person wins an award, often times others are inspired to strive to do their best so that they too can be recognized. Awards also help to set standards that colleagues and peers can strive to match and even exceed.  Sometimes, awards can even change how other people think about the awardee.
