Subj:    Invitation to Apply Now for Faculty Creative Activity Research Grants for FY 2015-16

On behalf of the Faculty Senate, I am very pleased to announce the continuation of a funding resource that supports Faculty creative activity: the Faculty Creative Activity Research Grant program, and to invite you to submit an application for funding for Fiscal Year 2015-2016. This important research grant program was created as a result of Faculty Senate Resolution S.10.3.

 The Faculty Creative Activity Research Grant application process is modeled largely on the CSU-AAUP grant application process.  Applications are reviewed separately and judged on their own merit. All tenure-track and tenured faculty are eligible to apply, and I encourage you to do so.

 Here are important details about Faculty Creative Activity Research Grants:

 Please keep in mind that the project performance period is the fiscal year July 1, 2015, to June 30, 2016.
