All nominations should be sent to the Vice Chancellor of Research, Chris Liu (

“For decades, our faculty have benefited from the support generously provided by the UMKC Trustees for the Faculty Fellow and Scholar Awards. Previously, these awards were both presented annually. Beginning in 2022, each one will be alternately awarded every year. This change is a reflection of the performance of the funds that support the awards and not the UMKC Trustees’ commitment to research and the faculty. For this year’s award cycle, 2023 , only applications for the Faculty Fellow Award will be accepted – the following year, the Faculty Scholar Award. Over time, the Trustees hope that both will return to be awarded on an annual basis.”
