Faculty Honorarium Program

Faculty Honorarium Program

"Be recognized for your scholarly engagement"

Who is Eligible to Apply?

The Faculty Honorarium program is designed for active faculty members who have presented at regional, national, or international professional or academic conferences or who have published scholarship in a professional or scholarly venue. Faculty applying for this program must have visibly demonstrated their affiliation with University of Phoenix within their presentation, the program, or in their publication. Faculty scholarship must be unique (faculty cannot receive multiple Honorarium payments if they publish or present the same material at multiple venues) and align to the University of Phoenix's adoption of Boyer's Model of Scholarship: unique contributions to discovery, integration, application, or teaching.

Staff, Full-time, or Part-time members who are also faculty but complete the research and writing or give the presentation as a part of their normal staff duties or during their staff time are not eligible.

How Often You Can Apply?

Faculty may have up to four approved Honoraria per the calendar year. 

Criteria and FAQs

Are all public forums acceptable? 

Not all public forums are considered appropriate for honoraria and the University reserves the right to evaluate both the appropriateness of the scholarship and the forum in which it is presented.

The Honorarium is not awarded for the following types of activities: University-sponsored events, proposed research, paid venues (paid CE classes, other paid lecture/presentations, or paid publications), self-publishing / vanity press publications, and publication in predatory journals.

What do I need to submit for an Honorarium?

Adequate documentation in order to demonstrate the completion of the scholarship activity should be submitted. Examples of this may include conference presentation, conference agenda, brochure, link to the conference website, physical publication, copies of the publication, link for online publication, ISBN, etc. Word documents or PowerPoint presentations cannot be the only documentation submitted; official documentation must be provided as well.

How much do I get paid for an approved Honorarium?

The Faculty Honorarium awards $200 for all presentations/publications submitted after 1/1/2019.

If I receive a grant or teaching and learning fellowship, does that prevent me from receiving the Honorarium award?

No, grant and teaching and learning fellowship recipients are not excluded from receiving Honorarium awards. 


We do NOT award for items published in journals that are considered predatory or vanity presses. To learn more about these types of publications, please review the articles below before submitting.

Submission to the Faculty Honorarium program must take place no later than 3 months after publication or presentation. Faculty cannot submit for an honorarium payment in advance of their publication or presentation. Faculty must be active with the University at the time the Honorarium is awarded.
