About the UF Term Professorship Award Program
Each academic year, starting in 2016-17, the university makes available to the colleges 250 Term Professorships. Each award runs for three years and provides a $5,000 per year salary supplement to the awardee. Tenure track Assistant, Associate and Full Professors, and Assistant, Associate and Full Curators in the fifth year, or more, of full-time service in the tenure-track title at UF are eligible for an award.
The Provost’s Office apportions University Term Professorships to the colleges according to the number of eligible faculty in the college. In selecting awardees, faculty advisory committees and/or department or school chairs/directors should provide input, and the dean makes the final determination
Holders of the award may add “University Term Professor” to their academic titles for the duration of the award.
