Compensation and Recognition


You'll receive a $3,500 stipend as either additional income or research/scholarly support for teaching an FYO seminar. To receive this compensation, you will need to submit this form. The completed form is due to the FYO Office in May for fall semesters and October for spring semesters.

FYO Awards

Each year up to six outstanding FYO instructors are recognized for their teaching with a $2,500 award.

The award recognizes excellence in instruction as well as how effectively the seminar is connected both to the faculty member's scholarship and the three primary goals for the First-Year Odyssey Seminar program. Award recipients are recognized at an annual reception for FYO faculty.
