UF Foundation Preeminence Term Professorships

The University of Florida Foundation’s Preeminence Term Professorship program was created in 2013 to support UF’s Preeminence goals.  Each fall, the Foundation awards two $25,000 term professorships for the duration of three years. Eligible faculty members must have substantial research assignments and outstanding records of accomplishment.  Faculty members may receive the award once during the program’s lifetime.

Term professorships are representative of UF’s commitment to invest in faculty members whose work is transforming lives.  The awards enable recipients to hire research assistants, purchase equipment, participate in special training and travel, and fund other things that enhance their work.  Faculty members are selected to receive the Preeminence Term Professorships from a pool of UF’s top faculty members who were nominated by their deans.
