Faculty Fellows

The UF Water Institute (WI) initiated a Faculty Fellow award program in 2013 to recognize University of Florida faculty who are making outstanding research, extension, or education contributions in water programs that further UF’s interdisciplinary communities of science in water. UF WI Faculty Fellows are selected based on the strength of their interdisciplinary research, education or extension program (with emphasis on the last three years), conducting a research program aligned with the mission of the WI and their on-going commitment to contribute to WI initiatives. Faculty Fellow awards are for three academic years during which time UF WI Faculty Fellows are recognized at an Awards Ceremony, featured in a UF-WI Seminar, active in coordinating interdisciplinary proposals, and serve as ambassadors for the Water Institute, both within and outside UF.

The Call for Nominations for WI Faculty Fellows is issued in the Spring semester, with awards starting at the beginning of the following Fall semester.
