The Flame Award for Teaching Excellence is given to exceptional UIC educators who have made a lasting impression on their students' lives and inspired their students by "lighting the flame" of desire for intellectual growth and lifelong learning. This award is unique among faculty awards at UIC in that nominations are submitted by alumni and sponsored by the UIC Alumni Advisory Board. The recipients receive an award and a monetary stipend of $1,000. Candidates may be current or retired faculty members of UIC, teaching at either the graduate or undergraduate level, and must be nominated by University of Illinois alumni. Individuals may be nominated multiple times, but can only receive the award once.
