Due Date: Friday, April 3, 2020 11:59 PM (PDT)

 
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 2020-2021 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 2020-2021 fiscal year (please ask your Resource Manager for specific date) and submit reports to the Chancellor's Office and the Office of Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activities.


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 2020 or spring 2021 term and submit reports to the Chancellor's Office and the Office of Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activities.
