The primary purpose of this grant is to provide support for research, scholarship, and creative activities (including pedagogical research) to all faculty. Faculty members at all ranks (part-time and full time), librarians, SSP-ARs, and faculty defined as Unit 3 members (including coaches) are eligible to compete for RSCA funding. 

RSCA grants support faculty activities which may include funds to pay undergraduate and graduate students to work as research assistants, to pay for publication costs, for research materials, or for travel associated with research activities.  

RSCA awards may be granted up to $8,000. Most grants are expected in the $2,000-$5,000 range.
