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 for an eminent faculty scholar.
The fund is in a position to make a significant one-time investment. UA Provost Andrew Comrie and UA Vice President for Development JP Roczniak have agreed to use these funds to bolster and grow endowments in the colleges and units of the University of Arizona.
Starting on November 1, 2016, the Eminent Scholars Fund will be providing 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.
