Funding Opportunities

Academic REC Booster Grant Program

Research funding for FY 2023-2024

Support recently hired UC academics (advisors, specialists, and campus faculty) with the initiation of research projects at UC ANR's Research and Extension Centers, a system of nine unique research and extension sites located across California. The REC Booster Grant Program applies an additional 80% reduction to the PI funded rate provided by a Center. The 80% is applied to UC PI project costs, for a maximum booster grant of $10K for FY 23/24. PI project costs exceeding the maximum grant
amount of $10K will need to be covered by the PI at the Center’s 2023-24 standard PI rates for UC researchers.
