Faculty Awards

A vibrant and dedicated faculty is the key to a successful college and a meaningful student experience.

The Honors College works hard to create a rewarding relationship with its faculty members and to nurture a transformative relationship between its faculty and students. To each Honors faculty member, the College provides a yearly professional development grant. Faculty use this grant in many ways ― research, professional dues, travel, library materials, office/clerical support, or other activities deemed to enhance their individual professional development and to enrich the Honors College.

With a minimum initial investment of $25,000 (payable over multiple years), a donor can endow a faculty fellowship to ensure the vibrant future of the Honors College.
