Center for California Studies and Special Funds

Faculty Research Fellows Program

The Center for California Studies also administers the Faculty Research Fellows Program for the Assembly, the governor and the senate offices. Since 1994/95, considerable faculty and staff resources of the CSU have been made accessible to either the executive or legislative branches of California state government through the Faculty Research Fellows Program.

The Faculty Research Fellows Program provides for directed faculty and staff research including research papers requested by the legislature and/or executive branch agencies, organizing and participating in conferences, seminars, symposiums, and similar public services activities. The direct costs of administering the Faculty Research Fellows Program are grants awarded to the researching faculty or staff. The budget also includes operating expenses to cover the cost of administering the program and publishing research results.
