The CSU Fullerton Strategic Plan, Goal 4, calls for a “25% increase in overall grants and contracts revenue through Principle Investigator applications” (http://planning.fullerton.edu/goal4.asp). To help meet this goal the University is committed to providing incentives necessary to increase faculty engagement in pursuing grants and contracts. The Incentive Grant program is one way to support this goal.
Proposals are invited from all full-time faculty members, full-time lecturers, coaches, counselors, and librarians(bargaining Unit 3 employees) for grants intended to support the scholarly and creative activities, and/or faculty time required to facilitate the preparation and submission of competitive external grants. We have a very limited number of these grants available and anticipate this will be a highly competitive process.
Senior and Junior faculty research grants support and enhance faculty research, creative and scholarly activities resulting in the following specific outcomes: 1) publications; 2) peer-reviewed conference presentations; 3) performance/exhibits; 4) pilot project implementation; and 5) professional development.
Ideally, funded activities should lead to competitive, externally funded (donors, private/public grants, contract, etc.) projects.
Please send the final reports to:
