Honors and Awards

Distinguished Service Award

Any member of the University of South Florida community (including self-nominations) may submit documented nominations of persons holding a continuing, full-time faculty appointment at USF for the Distinguished Service Award. The nominee must be currently employed at the time of the nomination deadline.  If a nominee leaves USF service before the award is bestowed, the nomination may be administratively withdrawn.

The Distinguished Service Award carries a cash award of $1,000; continuing, full-time faculty at any of the USF campuses are eligible to receive the award.


Service to the University, the community, and the profession or discipline are the elements assessed in nominations for the Distinguished Service Award.
