RCA applications now available

The FY18 guidelines and application materials for the Research/Creative Activity Grants (RCA) are now available on the ORSP website.

The RCA grants provide substantive support for research and creative activities and are awarded through the annual fall competition. These grants are intended for larger faculty research and creative projects that require more support and time.

In addition to a 6-week summer salary for the PI, the RCA grant provides funding up to $10,000 for other allowable costs. Refer to the guidelines for more detail.

All Research Enhancement programs are available to individuals with a full-time, tenure-track academic appointment as detailed in SFA policy 8.11 (Professor, Associate Professor, Assistant Professor, Instructor, and Librarian I-IV).

The final deadline to submit to ORSP is Friday, October 27, 2017 at 5 p.m. Individual departments and colleges may have earlier deadlines.

Guidelines and applications are available on the Internal Funding section of the ORSP website.
