Faculty Recruitment Allowance Program

Formerly known as the Salary Differential Housing Allowance Program, this program assists faculty recruitment through grants to selected eligible participants. The primary purpose of the Faculty Recruitment Allowance is to provide support for housing costs, but recipients may also use the allowance for childcare expenses, education or tuition assistance, or similar expenses. The Faculty Recruitment Allowance is considered taxable income and may be paid in one lump sum or over a period not to exceed ten years in equal, unequal, or declining balance amounts.

The eligible population for the program consists of full-time University appointees who are members of the Academic Senate pursuant to Regents' Standing Order Section 105.1, full time appointees to the title Acting Assistant Professor, or appointees in the Astronomer series and the Agronomist in the Agricultural Experiment Station series. The program is further limited to persons within two years of their qualifying appointment. An eligible faculty member who permanently transfers to another University location may be considered for a Faculty Recruitment Allowance, subsequent to his or her date of transfer.
