Application Deadline: COB October 3, 2022
CSU-WATER is requesting applications for funding for the 2022-2023 academic year. The purpose of the CSU-WATER Faculty Research Incentive Award Program is to provide funding for CSU faculty members to develop and submit full proposals to external funding agencies and organizations for water-related research and educational projects.
EXPECTATIONS Applications to develop full proposals on any fundable topic are eligible, provided they seek to advance knowledge of California’s water-related issues and the processes that affect them. In accepting an award, a Principal Investigator (PI) commits to develop and submit a full proposal for external funding through their host campus research office. A proposal for external funding is to be submitted within twelve (12) months of the start of the award.
ELIGIBILITY All CSU assistant, associate and full professors are eligible to apply. Priority will be given to assistant and associate professors.
SUPPORT PROVIDED CSU-WATER anticipates making multiple awards during the 2022-2023 academic year application cycle, contingent upon continued funding. Funding provided will be up to $6,000 per PI. Each individual PI applicant may request funding for assigned time, overload, summer pay, paid student interns, or any viable combination. Funds will be transferred to the award recipient’s College through a Cash Posting Order (CPO) and managed by the respective Dean. Office Awards are not subject to campus indirect costs (facilities and administrative fees) or any other type of fees from any source.
