Faculty Research and Creative Endeavors

PLEASE NOTE: The Faculty Research and Creative Endeavors Committee (FRCE) has requested that all faculty be informed that the FRCE funds allocated for the 2014 – 15 academic year have been fully committed.  This means that research grant resubmissions, and premier display applications will not be reviewed at the April 29, 2015 FRCE Committee meeting.  Applications will have to be submitted during the next academic year.
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 ORSP.
FRCE provides support for:
Publication and Exhibition Cost Grants 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.

Premier Display Grants cover presentation (travel) expenses to meetings, conferences or exhibitions through.

Research Grants support research, scholarship, or creative endeavors. There are two 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.
