Presidential Incentive Awards, Faculty-Staff Awards ceremonies

Dear UNG Faculty and Staff:

Please note the following opportunities and the upcoming Faculty-Staff Awards ceremonies.

Presidential Incentive Awards

I am pleased to announce the Request for Proposals for the 2017 Presidential Innovation, Summer and Semester Incentive Awards. Since I launched this awards program in fall 2013, we have awarded about $780,000 in support of more than 125 professional development, research and innovation projects across our campuses. These awards are a key investment in UNG faculty and staff, and I have been impressed by your creativity, collaboration and aspirations. The submission deadline is October 26, and I encourage you to apply.

General information on the awards

The following links will lead to the application page for each of the awards:

The process for the review of the proposals will be coordinated through the Office of the Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs.  As in past years, the three award categories will be reviewed by committees comprising faculty, staff and administrators.  If you have questions regarding the process, please email those questions to for clarification.
