Nominations for the Richard P. Feynman Prize for Excellence in Teaching are now open.

The Feynman Prize is endowed through the generosity of Ione and Robert E. Paradise, with additional contributions from a local anonymous couple, to honor annually a professor who demonstrates, in the broadest sense, unusual ability, creativity, and innovation in undergraduate and graduate classroom or laboratory teaching.

Nominations for the Feynman Prize may be made by any member of the Caltech community, including faculty, students, postdoctoral scholars, alumni, and staff. A letter of nomination and detailed supporting material (including, but not limited to, a curriculum vitae, course syllabus or description, and supporting recommendation letters) should be emailed with "Feynman Prize Nomination" in the subject line to provost@caltech.edu, or directed to:
