The Presidential Research, Scholarship and Artistry Professorships (PRSAP), formerly known as the Presidential Research Professorship, is NIU’s top recognition for outstanding research or artistry. The award has been given out annually since 1982 in recognition and support of NIU’s research and artistic mission. Award winners receive special financial support of their research for four years, after which they carry the title of Distinguished Research Professor.
