The Baillie Awards for Excellence in Secondary School Teaching were established by Chancellor Emeritus A. Charles Baillie.
These awards give students graduating from Queen’s University the opportunity to honour educators in Canada who, during the student’s high school career, had a decisive and formative influence on the student, and set them on the course to post-secondary education and ultimately to their graduation from Queen's.
These awards recognize an exceptional teacher who has served as a role model and mentor to their students, instilled a love of learning, and inspired academic excellence and the pursuit of higher education.
Up to five awards will be given annually. Teacher-recipients will each receive $5,000 and will be invited to campus to receive their award at their student nominee's convocation ceremony. Travel-related expenses up to $1,500 may be reimbursed.
The 2014 nomination period will be announced in January 2014.
Completed nomination forms should be submitted via email to the Vice-Provost and Dean of Student Affairs at email@example.com or completed forms can be dropped off at Gordon Hall 300 during business hours.
Recipients will be chosen by a selection committee mid-April. Students will be notified by email if their nomination is successful.
If you have any questions about the awards or the nomination process, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
