Eminent Scholars Program

Eminent Scholars Program

The Eminent Scholars Program is administered through the University of Arizona Office of the Provost. The fund provides resources for newly established endowments whose focus is on the recruitment and/or retention of an eminent faculty scholar.

The fund is in a position to make a significant one-time investment used to bolster and grow endowments in the colleges and units of the University of Arizona.

The Eminent Scholars Fund provides significant resources to college and units that close new faculty endowment gifts/gift commitments of $1M+. This funding will be available for the next $47.5M in new gifts and gift commitments (payable over 5 years or less) that meet the criteria. The UDP will provide updates on available funds quarterly or as needed.  Funds will only be committed once a signed gift agreement has been received by the UAF.
