Faculty Development Grants
FACULTY DEVELOPMENT GRANTS
Committed to serving the academic diversity of the UCLA campus, CSW offers the Faculty Development Grants to support a wide range of scholarship across the university. The Faculty Development Grants provide financial support to faculty in the humanities and the life, physical and social sciences. They accomplish two distinct goals: to fund research in the humanities and social sciences where external grants are less common and to make connections with life and physical science faculty engaged in CSW’s mission areas through the support of their research. These grants facilitate a more comprehensive research network and intellectual community at UCLA. Faculty Development funding buys time, travel, research support, books and other materials that allow junior and senior faculty to advance their research projects. It also provides often groundbreaking and non-traditional areas of research recognition and support. As such, it complements the COR (Academic Senate) grants program and ensures intellectual diversity and gender equity in the distribution of research resources.
FACULTY RESEARCH COMPLETION GRANTS are for projects that could be considered for CSW publications (policy briefs, research reports).
FACULTY RESEARCH SEED GRANTS are for the development of new projects that may lead to external funding opportunities through CSW.
JUNIOR FACULTY RESEARCH DEVELOPMENT GRANTS are for the completion of pre-tenure research projects and publications.
