Nominations sought for William H. Danforth St. Louis Confluence Award

The aim of advancing community-based research, teaching and practice with St. Louis is an important focus of Washington University’s new strategic plan, “Here and Next.” The deadline for nominations has been extended to Nov. 30 for the inaugural William H. Danforth St. Louis Confluence Award (STLCA). An award of $50,000 will recognize faculty research collaboration that best demonstrates WashU’s investment in the St. Louis region.

The award will focus on interdisciplinary community-based research that promotes impact, innovation and deep engagement with St. Louis. Topics to be considered include economic development, social mobility, education, housing, public health and government collaboration.

Information sessions for interested faculty will take place Nov. 8 on the Danforth Campus and Nov. 9 on the Medical Campus. Learn more on the STLCA website.

The STLCA will be presented at an annual conference slated for spring 2023. Any current WashU faculty member is eligible.
