Each year, Trinity University honors a Trinity faculty member with the Dr. and Mrs. Z. T. Scott Faculty Fellowship for excellence in teaching and advising. The fellowship consists of a cash award and an additional stipend to be used by the recipient to enhance his or her professional development as a teacher and advisor. The recipient is announced and recognized at Commencement ceremonies in May.
The selection committee welcomes nominations by Trinity faculty, students, and alumni. All nominees must be currently tenured at Trinity University. Nominating letters should address the nominee’s qualifications for this award – for instance, sustained effectiveness as a teacher and advisor, high expectations for student performance, involvement with the university community outside the classroom, and the ability to integrate teaching and scholarly interests.
Please send all letters of nomination to Duane Coltharp, Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs, no later than Friday, February 25. Electronic submissions are encouraged.
