Faculty Awards

The Office of Faculty Affairs coordinates endeavors across the University community to retain, develop, promote and support faculty to help them achieve productive and satisfying careers as researchers, teachers, clinicians, and academic administrators. In support of these goals, we host a number of award programs throughout the academic year. All funds are provided through these award competitions. Funds are not awarded on an ad hoc basis. We invite you to explore the resources available here to learn more about the awards. Our goal is to support as many faculty as possible and continue to offer resources that improve teaching, learning, and scholarship.

Research Scholarship and Creativity Awards | Provost Awards for Teaching, Scholarship, and Professional Service 

As a means of supporting the ongoing development of our research, scholarship, and creative activities, as well as recognizing excellence in teaching, scholarship, and professional service, the Office of Research and the Office of Faculty Affairs jointly manage the Research, Scholarship and Creativity Awards, as well as the Provost Awards for Teaching, Scholarship, and Professional Service.

Below you will find brief listings of the individual awards with links to further details, including funding levels and eligibility criteria.

Career Development Awards

The Career Development Awards help junior (pre-tenure) tenure-track faculty members increase their exposure to colleagues at other institutions who can be collaborators and mentors. Such connections can be extremely important to academic success as they can bring diverse perspectives to campus and help develop collaborative and interdisciplinary projects. Further information on these awards is available on a dedicated section of our website.

Teaching and Learning Conference Travel Awards

This competitive award provides funding for Drexel faculty members that have been accepted to present at professional conferences that showcase best practices in teaching and learning in higher education (this may include proposals to discipline-specific conferences that have targeted sections on issues clearly related to effective teaching and learning). Further information on these awards is available on a dedicated section of our website.
