The Office of Faculty Development has been fortunate to be able to provide small internal grants, called Minigrants, to tenure-track and temporary faculty members employed at CSU Channel Islands. The goal of the Minigrant Program is to support the success of our faculty members in achieving excellence in their research, scholarship, and creative activities.

Starting in 2014, the Research and Sponsored Programs Office will support the Minigrant Committee of Academic Senate by administering the Mini-Grant program.  

AY 2017-2018 Faculty Mini-Grant Program

Proposals for AY 2017-2018 funding are due by midnight, December 23, 2016, and should be submitted using the InfoReady Review application portal.  A link to this portal will appear here when it becomes available.

Faculty submitting proposals should forward a copy to their relevant program chairs/directors at the time of submission.
