The Faculty/Student Grants are designed to facilitate the initiation and development of collaborative research or creative activity (RCA) between students and faculty. Projects under this program are intended to provide students with in-depth “hands-on” experience in the research or creative activity process.
The maximum amount of $1,500 may be awarded to each faculty/student team. The number of grants awarded depends on budgets and the funds available to the OSR each year.
Applications for the Faculty/Student Grants will be competitively evaluated by the OSR Awards Committee. The quality of the student research or creative activity (RCA) experience will be a determining factor in the selection process. Applicants are thus asked to specify the role of the student(s) and faculty mentor(s) in the project, and the nature of the work to be done. To be eligible, students have to be full-time and in good academic standing at CSUSB.
Grantees are asked to submit a progress report and final report explaining how the award was used. Grantees are also required to present a poster and oral presentation during the annual “Meeting of the Minds” Student Research Symposium. Applications are submitted online.
Deadline: Application is now closed. Please check back in Fall 2018.
