Since 1995, CLAS Term Professorships have been awarded to outstanding faculty who excel in both scholarship and teaching. These professorships, funded entirely by private sources, allow the college to recognize faculty who are making a significant difference in the classroom as well as through their scholarship. These named term professorships provide a one-time salary supplement and a small research fund in the year of the award. Normally, a term professor will be tenured and contributing strongly to the research, teaching, and service areas of the college. Approxmately ten professorships are awarded each year. Nominations are required by April 15. For more information, contact Evelyn Barre (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences awards funds on a semester-to-semester basis to graduate students who have advanced to ABD status. This fellowship includes a stipend of $7,000 per term plus a waiver of tuition fees. For more information, consult your department’s director of graduate studies. Forms are available at:
Students are encouraged to consult with their Director of Graduate Studies for more information about this grant. An evaluation by the chair of the respective department is necessary for submission.

The purpose of this CLAS program is to provide funding to faculty members who do not have the resources to obtain preliminary results in response to reviews of a declined research proposal. Note that this program is not appropriate for faculty members who have recently received large startup packages or other support to build a research program. Tenure-track and tenured faculty are eligible to apply for this support. Faculty members who have recently received start-up funds or other support to carry out preliminary studies, as judged by the college, are not eligible. Such startup or support funds would typically be sufficient to equip a laboratory and hire graduate assistants and postdoctoral associates. Applicants must have submitted a proposal to an agency for major funding (total budget of at least $100,000) that was declined. The declined proposal and reviews are required for the application package. There must be a strong indication that additional preliminary work will enhance the chances for funding of the proposal upon resubmission. It is expected that the proposals will be resubmitted to the agency and will incorporate the results of the supported preliminary research.
For more information, see: http://www.clas.ufl.edu/forms/. This grant has not been renewed, but the CLAS Dean's office may consider applications on a case by case basis.
The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences awards funds to UF faculty members for travel on a semester-to-semester basis. Priority is given to junior faculty attending international and professional meetings. For more information, please go to: http://www.clas.ufl.edu/forms/.
Applications must be submitted through faculty’s respective departments before being forwarded to the College.

Purpose: The University of Florida International Center (UFIC) is pleased to announce a call for proposals for
international course development at the undergraduate level. Proposals may be for entirely new courses,
or for revisions to appropriate existing courses. Awards will be either $3000 for revising an existing
course, $5000 for a new course, or $6000 to be shared among two or more faculty jointly proposing a
new course. In this round of curriculum development, UFIC seeks the development of approximately 15-18 courses for inclusion in the International Scholars Program. Faculty will submit course proposals through a designated college representative. Colleges will endorse
and forward approved proposals to UFIC for final evaluation and award decisions.
Course Development: The goal for this round of awards is to develop courses campus-wide, each of which should
represent a survey of the international dimensions of a college or discipline. Thus, course content
should be internationally and thematically-focused. It is anticipated that many of these courses
are likely to target students in a particular college, although courses with cross-college
collaboration and appeal are also welcome.
Eligible Faculty: Tenured and tenure-track UF faculty with ongoing teaching appointments in undergraduate
degree-granting departments, programs, and/or centers. Lecturers and other non-tenure track faculty who have teaching appointments and course development responsibilities in undergraduate degree-granting departments, programs, and/or centers.
Timeline: Please be aware of the deadline communicated by your college. Proposals will only be accepted directly from each designated college represenative. Submit proposals to Arlene Williams at email@example.com
will be two information sessions regarding the Call for Proposals. One
session will be held on Wednesday, 14 January from 2:00 - 3:00 pm. The
other session will be held on Thursday, 15 January 10:00 - 11:00 am.
Both sessions will be held in the UF International Center conference
room (room 145) which is located inside the HUB. Attendance is highly recommendend.
