Edgerton Junior Faculty Award

Established in 2001, this award honors outstanding junior (pre-tenured) faculty in the third year of his or her appointment who has demonstrated creative research, extraordinary teaching abilities and academic promise. The award’s goal is to provide strong incentive to pre-tenure faculty to expand expertise and enhance learning at UNL. This award provides resources for professional development funds and a cash award for two years. It is named in honor of a distinguished alumnus, inventor of the strobe light and instrumental in refining sonar, and his wife.
