Provost and Office of Research Faculty Awards

2020-2021 Faculty Award Nominations

The 2020-21 Faculty Award nomination and review process is now open. The Office of the Provost recognizes high caliber faculty with university-wide awards for teaching, research, service and advising.

The nomination form is due by the specific award’s deadline. Some awards require additional materials and those are due by Feb. 7.

Supporting materials can be emailed to or submitted via campus mail to:

Office of the Provost
Osborne Administration Building
Suite 102
Columbia, South Carolina 29208

Please note that most awards are one time-career awards and former winners are not eligible to be nominated for the same award. This does not preclude previous award-winning faculty being nominated for a different award.
