Did you know that there is money available for special student projects through the Associated Students' Academically Related Reserves Account (ARRA)?
Each semester, every CSUN student pays an Associated Students fee. And each semester, some of that money is put in to the ARRA for a total each year of approximately $35,000.
Most students don’t realize that every semester, some their student fees are used to create this pool of funding and they need to apply to access it. The important role faculty play in mentoring and supporting students in their scholarly and creative activities includes guiding the students to this type of special funding.
The purpose of ARRA, according to Associated Students, is to encourage individual (or small group) CSUN undergraduate and graduate students’ intellectual development through partial funding of the costs associated with the creation of original research or other scholarly works (papers, posters, performance pieces, etc.), and their presentation at academic or professional conferences or competitions."

The following are hypothetical examples of eligible research projects:
ARRA funding is available on a first come-first served basis. Requests for ARRA funding from currently enrolled students may be submitted at least one month before funding is needed throughout the academic year. To qualify for presentation-related conference travel, students need to submit proof of an invitation or receipt from the upcoming conference. (Retroactive funding is not permitted.)
Application forms are available from the Central Office of Associated Students. For more information or to get an application form, visit their site, send an email or call (818) 677-2477.
