The goal of the Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity (RSCA) Awards is to support faculty and student engagement in research, scholarship, and creative activities, furthering the mission of the University.  All Unit 3 faculty may compete for funding, including Instructional Faculty, Librarians, Coaches, and Counselors.

Funding will be available for Minigrants of up to $5,000 and for RSCA Assigned Time Awards (one course release).  Funding is awarded for fall or spring 2019-2020 only.

Minigrants – These awards (up to $5,000) allow faculty to test promising ideas.  Funds can be used for undergraduate and/or graduate assistants, clerical assistance, travel, and supplies necessary for the activity.  Minigrants may not be used for faculty release time from teaching assignments.  Minigrants must be expended by the end of the spring 2020 term (for specific date, please check with your Resource Manager).

RSCA Assigned Time Awards
 – Assigned Time awards provide faculty with one course release (three units) to develop or complete research, scholarship, or creative activities.  RSCA Assigned Time awards must be taken during the fall 2019 or spring 2020 term.
