Scholarly Recognition Program

Scholarship Recognition Program


The Scholarship Recognition Program recognizes and rewards faculty scholarly activity. The program provides monetary awards for research and scholarly activity conducted as a GCU faculty member. Award funding is a competitive process allocated as a function of the type and frequency of research activities. Scholarship completed by faculty approved to teach in a Ph.D. program and/or faculty research related to STEM or SoTL topics receive funding priority. Maximum award per faculty member per year is $500. All GCU faculty members (full-time and adjunct) are eligible to submit scholarly activities for consideration.
