This is a reminder of CSUPERB’s open call for proposals for its COVID-19 Research Recovery Microgrant Program. This program has a maximum budget of $1,500 and will be offered until budgeted funding is exhausted.
CSUPERB is revising the eligibility criteria for the program, removing the limitation that the program was only open to those faculty who have participated in a CSUPERB program between July 2017 and the present.
The program is still limited to tenured/tenure-track CSU Faculty that have suffered losses to their CSU based research projects as a direct result of the halting of research activities due to the COVID-19 pandemic. See the revised RFP, which includes all contextual information, review criteria, full eligibility requirements, and submission policies for the program. It can be found on the CSUPERB home page.
The goal of the program is to assist CSUPERB tenured/tenure track faculty researchers and their students across the California State University (CSU) system as they restart, reinitiate, and re-engage in existing and established research activities after campus laboratory closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The COVID-19 Research Recovery Microgrant Program can be used to reestablish lines and may include supporting student wages for training and/or assisting faculty during their research program recovery process, such as providing support in replacing supplies, repairing/replacing equipment, and/or other research-related materials damaged or expired. This program will not fund research activities started after campus COVID-19 closures and research not impacted as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
