GOAL

The goal of the Research, Scholarship, and Creative Award is to support faculty and student engagement in research, scholarship, and creative activities, furthering the mission of the University.

Who can Apply?

All Unit 3 faculty may compete for funding, including Instructional Faculty, Librarians, Coaches, and Counselors. In order to provide support to the largest number of Cal State LA faculty, we are asking individuals to apply for either a Minigrant Award or an Assigned Time Award (3 units).  Faculty may not apply to both or submit multiple applications for a Minigrant or Assigned Time Award. 

These awards (up to $5,000) allow faculty to test promising ideas. Funds may 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 2023-2024 fiscal year (please ask your Resource Manager for specific date). In addition, a summary report of your funded project must be submitted to the Chancellor's Office and the Office of Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activities. NOTE: if funded, proposed expenditures must be approved with your Resource Manager.

 

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 2023 or spring 2024 term. A summary report must be submitted to the Chancellor's Office and the Office of Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activities.
