At its 1309th meeting held on 22 July 2015, the UP Board of Regents approved the allocation of P100 Million per year for the period January 2016-December 2018 for approximately 800 professorial chair awards and faculty grant awards to be distributed among academic units across all the Constituent Universities. Named One UP Professorial Chair (PC) Awards and Faculty Grant (FG) Awards, these aim to further provide recognition and incentives to faculty members who demonstrate outstanding performance in two out of three work areas of the faculty: teaching, research or creative work, and public service.
To encourage a higher standard of performance among the faculty, the Board of Regents also approved the continuity of the awards subject to availability of funds in its 1323rd meeting last 16 December 2016. The revised guidelines have also been approved by the Board on its 1340th meeting last 3 December 2018 to cover more faculty. Hence, the 2019-2021 One UP PC & FG Awards are now accepting applications.
