Eligibility, Criterion and Continuity

The award, which includes a $3000 cash prize, is offered at most once a year to a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada whose research was carried out primarily in Canada.

Since its creation in 1999, recipients of the award have been Christian Genest (Laval), Robert J. Tibshirani (Stanford), Colleen D. Cutler (Waterloo), Larry A. Wasserman (Carnegie Mellon), Charmaine B. Dean (Simon Fraser), Randy R. Sitter (Simon Fraser), Jiahua Chen (Waterloo), Jeffrey S. Rosenthal (Toronto), Richard J. Cook (Waterloo), Paul Gustafson (UBC), Hugh Chipman (Acadia), Grace Y. Yi (Waterloo), Edward Susko (Dalhousie), Changbao Wu (Waterloo), Derek Bingham (Simon Fraser), Fang Yao (University of Toronto), Matias Salibán-Barrera (University of British Columbia) and Radu Craiu (University of Toronto).

A candidate is eligible for the CRM-SSC Prize if no more than 15 years have elapsed since the candidate received his/her Ph.D. (or equivalent degree), excluding any parental leaves or other leaves of absence from work that can be demonstrated to have delayed professional achievements. Thus, in the absence of any such leaves, to be eligible for the CRM-SSC Prize in the year N, a candidate must have received his/her Ph.D. (or equivalent degree) in the year N – 15 or subsequently.

The nominations will be examined by an Advisory
Committee consisting of five members, three of whom are
appointed by the SSC and two by the CRM. The committee
is chaired by one of the two CRM representatives.

Nominations, including three letters of support, an up-to-date curriculum vitae (with a list of publications), and a suggested citation to accompany the award should be submitted to the CRM before February 1st of the calendar year. As files are not carried over from one year to the next, nominations must be renewed each year.

Prix - Menu
The CRM created and administers, either alone or jointly, four of the eight major national prizes in the mathematical sciences, namely:  the CRM–Fields–PIMS Prize,  the Prize for Theoretical Physics awarded in collaboration with the Canadian Association of Physicists (CAP), the Prize for young researchers in Statistics awarded jointly with the Statistical Society of Canada (SSC), and the CRM Aisenstadt Prize awarded to rising young Canadian stars, selected by CRM's Scientific Advisory Panel. The CRM has invested enormously in time, effort and in its own resources, to propel leading Canadian scientists into the spotlight, giving them international recognition when they most need it.
