Purpose

To recognize faculty for their substantial, outstanding, and continuing contributions to their professions in the areas of teaching and educational activities; research, scholarly, or artistic activities; and/or service to the university, professional organizations, and the community.

Nominations

Faculty may be nominated for a University Faculty Fellowship by the full-time faculty (tenured, tenure-track, and lecturers) and academic administrators at the college-level (Deans, associate Deans, faculty/division/program chairs). Nominations of faculty will be made to the Senior Vice President and Provost. A faculty advisory group, which will include one faculty member from each college appointed by Provost, will provide advice and counsel to the chief academic officer with regard to the faculty nominees. The Provost will make recommendations to the President of UH-Clear Lake. The deadline for submission of nominations to the Provost is March of each year. Recommendations for faculty fellowships by the Provost are due to the President by April. The President will announce the recipients of University Faculty Fellowships for the academic year by May. 

Nomination Format

Each nomination should include a letter of nomination detailing how the faculty member meets the purpose of a University Faculty Fellowship as noted above. The letter of nomination should also include a current curriculum vitae of the nominee. Additional supporting material may be included, but should not exceed ten additional pages.

Terms and Conditions

A University Faculty Fellowship will be awarded for a period of one academic year. A recipient of a University Faculty Fellowship will be awarded a $5,000 stipend for the academic year to be used for expenses for educational materials (books, software, equipment), research seed money, travel to conferences, workshops, and seminars, and related items. The funds may not be used as a salary supplement. These funds are held in trust in the Provost's operating budget and can be expensed through Academic Business Services, B2528, Box 74. Recipients of University Faculty Fellowships must submit a report detailing the activities supported by and the benefits derived from the Fellowship funding. This report is due to the President of UHCL by August.
