Research, Scholarship and Creative Activity (RSCA) Incentive Grant to Promote External Funding

Cycle: Fall
Deadline: CLOSED

Goal 3 of Cal State Fullerton’s 2018-2023 University Strategic Plan calls for “assessing and adjusting effectiveness of current programs to enhance the support for faculty teaching, scholarly and creative activities, and service.” Funded by the CSU Chancellor’s Office, the Research, Scholarship and Creative Activity (RSCA) grant program is designed to support this goal and encourages grant applications for new or continued faculty engagement in pursuit of external funding.

All full-time faculty members, full-time lecturers, coaches, counselors and librarians (bargaining Unit 3 employees) are invited to submit proposals. This competitive, peer-reviewed program welcomes proposals from either collaborative teams or a single investigator, although interdisciplinary and collaborative ideas, project design or methodologies are strongly encouraged.
