Texas Tech University

President's Engaged Scholarship Awards

The Offices of the President, Provost, and Associate Vice President for Outreach and Engagement are pleased to announce a new awards program to publicly recognize and reward individual Texas Tech faculty and teams of faculty from all disciplines who demonstrate exemplary and sustained commitment to engagement with community partners. Recognized faculty apply their teaching, research, or creative activity to address a significant community need or larger social issue, trying to find solutions that may improve the quality of life for individuals, families, and communities. They actively collaborate with members of the community (locally, statewide, nationally, or globally), regarding them as equal partners in the process, sharing knowledge and expertise, and working together to generate new knowledge for the mutual benefit of both the community and the university.

The President's Engaged Scholarship Awards consist of three separate awards: 

Select the individually listed awards above to learn more about criteria and eligibility.

Each of these awards recognize Texas Tech faculty for a relatively new project or initiative that demonstrates high potential for the advancement of engaged scholarship. The project or initiative shows outstanding promise for having a significant impact on communities and the university. The award recipient(s) must have a demonstrated interest in the need or issue that the project or initiative seeks to address and, at a minimum, will have laid the foundation for the work and established relationships with partnering organizations.
