Here's your chance to nominate your favorite professor for the 2022-23 Richard P. Feynman Prize for Excellence in Teaching! You have from now until December 19, 2022 to submit your nomination package to honor a professor who demonstrates, in the broadest sense, unusual ability, creativity, and innovation in undergraduate and graduate classroom or laboratory teaching.

The Feynman Prize is made possible through the generosity of Ione and Robert E. Paradise, with additional contributions from an anonymous local couple. Nominations for the Feynman Teaching Prize are welcome from faculty, students, postdoctoral scholars, staff, and alumni.

All active tenure-track and tenured professorial faculty of the Institute are eligible. The prize consists of a cash award of $3,500, matched by an equivalent raise in the annual salary of the awardee. Nomination packages should include a letter of nomination of no more than 750 words with up to five additional letters, each no more than 500 words, from students and colleagues. Supporting material, such as a curriculum vitae and course syllabus or description, can also be included. Nomination packages should be emailed to [email protected].

Additional information including guidelines for the prize and FAQ may be found at If you would like further information, send your inquiries to [email protected].
