On-campus Opportunities

CSUN Competition for Research, Scholarship and Creative Activity Awards

The office of Research and Sponsored Projects sponsors its own internal grant competition. Faculty may apply for 3 units of release time or a $5,000 mini-grant. In concert with the campus-wide effort to support scholarly activity by probationary faculty, those who have been at CSUN for 5 years or less are strongly encouraged to apply. 

Awards should:

  • Initiate a project with the expectation that the faculty member will apply for external funding or
  • Enable faculty to complete research or a creative project.

Proposals are reviewed by the Research and Grants Committee.

Check back in December for information on the 2015-16 competition.
