Description: WRPI is requesting applications for funding for the 2018-2019 academic year. The purpose of the WRPI 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.
Recipients of awards are to use their funding to develop full proposals to external funding agencies or organizations that will seek to advance knowledge of California’s water-related issues and the processes that affect them. Proposals may cover a wide variety of topics related to water that are aligned with the WRPI mission; infrastructure (including electronic) or equipment that would help WRPI realize its goals; enhanced faculty professional development; and/or enhanced student learning.
Recipients must submit full proposals to external funding sources within twelve (12) months of the beginning of the academic term in which the assigned time is received. Submission of letters of intent, preliminary proposals, and pre-proposals will not fulfill this requirement. Recipients will not be eligible to apply for WRPI funding again until this requirement is met. As a condition of award, recipients agree to provide a brief progress report of their related activities within 12 months of award. Recipients also agree to notify WRPI of any awards resulting from the Faculty Research Incentive Award.
• Individual applicants may only submit one request for funding in response to this RFA.
• Recipients may not receive more than one award per academic year.
• Awards will not be given to individuals to write or complete manuscripts.
• Assigned time, summer pay, overburden, and/or paid student interns, if awarded, MUST be utilized during the 2018-2019 academic year. Awards cannot be deferred.
Eligibility is limited to CSU assistant, associate and full professors are eligible to apply. Priority will be given to assistant and associate professors. Collaborative applications involving faculty from multiple CSU campuses that promote interdisciplinary, integrative research and/or educational initiatives and that include regional and disciplinary diversity are preferred. Projects including collaboration with University of California campuses will also be scored favorably.
Up to 20% of the program budget can be used on CSU/UC partnership proposals. ANR is not eligible as a lead applicant to the program.
