Display RSCA, Publications at Achievement Awards

Faculty and students are invited to submit recent and ongoing research, publications, and creative activities to be displayed at the University Achievement Awards on Wednesday, April 22. Learn more.


2015-16 RSCA Call for Proposals

The Division of Academic Affairs will allocate $1.5 million to research and scholarly activity for 2015-16, the highest level of internal campus support for research, scholarly and creative activity in CSULB history (and probably the highest level of internal support in the system).  In addition, the Chancellor's office has reinstated system-level funding ($200,000) for research, scholarly and creative activity for the 2015-2016 AY. 


Although Academic Affairs provides funding for research, scholarly and creative activity awards, each academic college administers the award process.  College award committees will review, evaluate, and rank proposals, and the Deans will make final decisions on awards.


Support will be available in the form of:

  • Reassigned Time

  • Small Faculty Grants

Contact your College Office regarding application information. Submit proposals to your college office by Monday, March 2, 2015 at 5 p.m.  Further Information is available on the ORSP website.
