General Information

The Penn State Award for Faculty Outreach was established in 1998 by the Provost and Vice President for Outreach in collaboration with the University Council on Engagement and the Faculty Senate Committee on Outreach.  The award recognizes faculty who make significant contributions to outreach. Outreach is the process of extending the intellectual expertise and resources of the University through teaching, research, and/or service to address the social, civic, economic, and environmental issues and opportunities facing our Commonwealth, nation, and world. The established Penn State Award for Faculty Outreach consists of a stipend of $1,000.


Full-time faculty members whose primary responsibilities are teaching, research, and/or service, are eligible. Full-time faculty are defined as persons holding full-time research appointments, whether fixed-term or continuing, with the exception of those who hold the rank of research assistant.
