CLA Faculty Research/Creative Activity Fund

The College of Liberal Arts has established the Research/Creative Activity Fund to supplement or enhance existing funding in support of CLA faculty research/creative activity. Awards up to $500 may be administered. Individuals may receive only one award per academic year.

Funds will be administered by a three-person committee appointed by the CLA Dean.  The committee will include one faculty member from each of the college pillars: arts, social sciences, and humanities.

Review of funding applications will take place three times annually:

  • 3rd Monday of the Fall semester
  • 3rd Monday of the Spring Semester
  • Monday following Spring Commencement

Successful applications will demonstrate a benefit of the activity to the applicant’s teaching and/or service portfolio and will include evidence of other funding sources beyond the CLA Research/Creative Activity Fund.  Faculty must include a brief statement of support from their department chair, attached in the Supporting Documentation section of the Funding Request Application.
