Entrepreneurship Faculty Fellows

Celebrating Scholars Who Think and Act in Entrepreneurial Ways

The program is open to all full-time UF faculty members, including those from all disciplines and academic areas on the campus. We seek academic entrepreneurs or faculty interested in integrating an entrepreneurial mindset and related concepts, tools, and frameworks into their home discipline; particularly into their research, teaching, or outreach activities.

Apply to be a Fellow

Applications to become an Entrepreneurship Faculty Fellow are accepted on a rolling basis, with up to five new fellows being accepted each year. To qualify, a faculty member needs to propose an initiative that reflects the interface between their own academic area and entrepreneurship. Proposals can center on any professional activity that the individual wants to pursue over the next few years.

If accepted to the program, the Fellow is jointly appointed to her/his home department and the Entrepreneurship & Innovation Center in the Warrington College of Business. Small pools of financial support are available to assist with the project they undertake. In addition to this project, fellows get together for informal monthly lunches to discuss what each is doing and explore interdisciplinary questions related to entrepreneurial behavior, and the nature of an entrepreneurial university. An annual forum, open to the entire university community, is held to feature the activities of the Fellows. Fellows are typically appointed for up to three years, although the appointment is renewable.
