The UGC invites annually nominations from institutions on its UGC Teaching Award, which is established to honour staff in the UGC sector who excel in teaching. The current Scheme consists of two categories: (1) general faculty members/teams; and (2) early career faculty members (open to individuals only). Each University is invited to nominate up to three nominations in total. If three nominations are submitted, among the three at least one nomination should be in each of the two Award categories. Details are set out in the UGC’s letter dated February 14, 2017 (Appendix A).

Applications are now invited from teaching excellence award winners for these two categories of awards. For details, please refer to the circular from the Vice-President and Pro-Vice-Chancellor dated February 27, 2017, which includes in its Appendix A details of the UGC Scheme. Applications should reach Ms. Synthia Chau, Curriculum Development and Quality Assurance Section of the Registry, by March 17, 2017.
