The Faculty Research and Creative Endeavors (FRCE) program is administered by a faculty committee appointed by the Academic Senate, with oversight and grant management provided by the Office of Research and Graduate Studies (ORGS).
FRCE provides support for:
Premier Display Funds cover presentation (travel) expenses to meetings, conferences or exhibitions.
Publication and Exhibition Cost Funds cover the costs associated with the publication of a scholarly book or monograph, page charges, exhibition fees, shipping costs of artwork, and other similar expenses.
Research Grants support research, scholarship, or creative endeavors. There are three types of awards with maximum funding of $3,500 and $8,000.
Termination Report: FRCE Research Grant recipients are required to submit a Termination Report at the conclusion of their grant. Click below to download a copy of the Termination Report Form that corresponds with the year you received your award.
