Ursinus faculty win prestigious grants and fellowships in their fields, maintain a high level of teaching excellence, and are recognized by their students and colleagues for their achievements.
Faculty Grants and Fellowships
In recent years, Ursinus faculty have been awarded grants from the National Science Foundation, the National Institute of Health, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Reacting to the Past Endeavor Grant Consortium, the Pew Fellowship for the Arts, the Pennsylvania Consortium for the Liberal Arts, and the Charles Kaufman Foundation, among many others.
In addition to other grant-funded projects, the college currently holds a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for the revision of the core curriculum and the development of our first-year advising cohort program.
Commencement Awards and Awards for First-Year Advising
Every year, faculty are honored at graduation with awards for excellence in teaching, scholarship, and mentorship. Teaching and mentoring awards are based on student nominations, while awards for scholarship are based on nominations from the faculty. Exceptional first-year advisors are honored with an award, based on student nominations, at Ursinus Day of Academic Convocation. See the story of our 2018 awardees from last May’s Commencement.
