LAUC offers members two opportunities to apply for grants. Research, mini and presentation grant applications will be taken in fall 2017, for which monies will be made available by January 2018; and in winter 2018, applications for presentation grants will be taken for funds awarded in March 2018. The detailed calendar below indicates dates for submission and evaluation of proposals.
Guidelines for LAUC grants are listed at https://lauc.ucop.edu/guidelines-for-lauc-grants
There are a few restrictions that apply to the grant awarding process. Any applicant who has not submitted the required end of funding (EOF) report for a previous LAUC grant shall be disqualified from consideration for a new grant. The annual pool of viable applications varies in number, type of grant, and amount of support requested, exceeding the amount of available funding. In such instances, the LAUC Research and Professional Development Committee retains flexibility in the distribution of awards.
The “Research and Professional Development Committee” page on the LAUC website features many helpful documents: http://lauc.ucop.edu/committees/rpd/index.php
Please note that one paper copy (with required signatures) AND an email copy of your proposal must be submitted to the Chair of your divisional research committee by October 15, 2017. Funding for projects approved by LAUC R&PD will be available at the end of March 2018.
