- General Principles
- Career Development Awards are the heart of the University's Faculty Development Awards Program. This is a competitive program designed to encourage scientific inquiry, research, artistic creation, clinical/technical expertise, and innovation in teaching. The award usually takes the form of a single semester of paid leave.
- Faculty Scholar Awards give leading scholars the opportunity to do creative work of the highest quality. Faculty Scholar Awards are meant to provide faculty of great promise with opportunities for extended and concentrated work.
- Global Scholar Awards provide faculty members the opportunity to conduct research on international topics for a semester each year for two years.
- Old Gold Summer Fellowships provide faculty on nine-month appointments with funding for summer work on an approved developmental project.
- Faculty Fellowships - Named in honor of distinguished UI faculty, these fellowships provide an opportunity for other scholars to contribute to the fields of study in which these distinguished faculty are most clearly recognized. There are two awards, the May Brodbeck Humanities Fellowship and the James Van Allen Natural Science Fellowship, awarded in alternate years.
