At its 1309th meeting held on 22 July 2015, the UP Board of Regents approved the allocation of P100 Million per year for the period January 2016 – December 2018 for approximately 800 professorial chair awards and faculty grant awards to be distributed among academic units across all the Constituent Universities. Named One UP Professorial Chair (PC) Awards and Faculty Grant (FG) Awards, these aim to further provide recognition and incentives to faculty members who demonstrate outstanding performance in two out of three work areas of the faculty: teaching, research or creative work, and public service.

The One UP Professorial Chair (PC) Awards and One U.P. Faculty Grant (FG) Awards are funded through the General Appropriations Act. Per the General Appropriations Act for FY 2022, Php 103 million has been earmarked for the awards. To encourage a higher standard of performance among the faculty, the Board of Regents approved the continuity of the awards subject to the availability of funds. The revised guidelines have also been approved by the Board at its 1340th meeting last 3 December 2018 to allow more faculty to apply. The call for applications will be announced by the Office of the President at a later date.
