Scholarship in Publishing Award

Excellence in Publishing Award

"Engage with academic and practitioner communities"

Encouraging greater scholarship, engagement and understanding are the primary reasons for this recognition program.

Who is Eligible to Apply

University of Phoenix faculty members who have published research in peer-reviewed journals or publications, edited industry publications, or edited books can be awarded $200.  Publication with students or alumni is encouraged.


The award is given per presentation, not author, on a competitive basis taking into account factors like the impact of a journal or the contribution of the article to a discipline or teaching and learning.  Research submitted for awards must be included in the submitter’s faculty profile to be considered. 


$200 for faculty only 
for faculty publishing with students or alumni 

Note: publications/presentations related or similar to other submitted publications/presentations will be awarded at reduced amounts. As well, no more than 1 award is allowed per person, per event, for presenting and for publishing, and no more than 3 awards in a year per opportunity.


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.

As of Feb. 23, 2022

We are working behind the scenes to make the application of funding not only easier but something that will be applied to your faculty profile! This allows you to demonstrate your awarded grants within the same place where your faculty credentials are housed.

As we migrate to the other system, while it is being built for us, we will be temporarily stopping awards for grant submissions until June 2022. However, that does not mean that you cannot still apply for the various awards. What will happen is that your desire to apply will be held in queue until our other system is built. What this will do for you is allow you the opportunity to be in line to try the new system once it's up and running.

We ask for your patience during the interim. You can follow the  link provided here to submit for the desired award.


Again, this only puts you in queue for the new system. It does not mean that you will be awarded based on the submission. Once the new system is up and running, we can then proceed with those who submit as test applicants in the new system and evaluate the applications at that time.

Infoready, the system you may have used previously for applying for grants, will be retired beginning in  February and no longer used for awards.
