Grants for My Research (GMR)

Grants for My Research (GMR) is CSUDH’s grant proposal development program that aims to equip faculty with the tools required for the development and submission of competitive extramural grant proposals. This program is designed to provide faculty with resources for research development and idea refinement, editorial and writing support, grantspersonship, and mentoring for the timely submission of high-quality extramural grant proposals. Overall, GMR will support faculty in their efforts to achieve success in research, scholarly, and creative activities for tenure and promotion.

GMR program activities will include:

  • Online Kick-off workshops
  • One-on-one consultations with a grant development mentor in addition to other cohort/group meetings.
  • Opportunity to attend local meeting(s) or trainings in grant development.
  • Ongoing access to grant reviewers and proposal editors.

For the current program deadline, visit the research calendar or the InfoReady online applications and submission portal. The program guidelines can be found in the InfoReady portal.

Non-Tenure Track Faculty (NTTF) Research Development Program

NTTF Research Development Program is a new program (started in Summer 2021) at CSUDH that aims to support non-tenure track faculty (NTTF) who are eager to strengthen their research* portfolio, but need resources, guidance, and mentoring to get started. Strengthening research portfolios may include submission of manuscripts and other research products including competitive extramural grant proposals.

The NTTF Research Development Program consists of a one-day Online Research Portfolio Workshop, held in the summer, where NTTF will:

  • develop and refine their research CV;
  • create their research development strategic plan;
  • identify areas of improvement for their research;
  • identify next steps for their research (e.g., grant writing or manuscript writing); and
  • create a 1-page future research plan summary.

*The term research is used as a stand-in for all research, scholarly, and creative activities, and is not specific to any one discipline.

For the current program deadline, visit the research calendar or the InfoReady online applications and submission portal. The program guidelines can be found in the InfoReady portal.

If you have any questions regarding the NTTF Research Development program, please contact Brigette Brown, Thesis & Grant Review Coordinator, bbrown@csudh.edu.

Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity (RSCA) Awards Program

The California State University, Dominguez Hills (CSUDH) Department of Graduate Studies and Research is pleased to announce the launch of the annual Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity (RSCA) Awards Program for the 2022-23 academic year. This intramural faculty research grant program is intended to support faculty research, scholarship, and creative activity, interpreted broadly to mean the disciplined quest for broadening human understanding. This quest includes artistic creation and the study of moral values, as well as logical and empirical inquiry into any field appropriate to the functions of the University. Community engagement, professional development, service, and curriculum development activities will not be considered through this competition except as part of a proposal to conduct a research or evaluation project related to those activities. Faculty are encouraged to use the activities and results from these awards to pursue external funding to broaden the scope and reach of their research, scholarship, and creative activities.

Furthermore, to encourage mentoring of students who engage in faculty-led RSCA projects, the RSCA 2022 grant application provides an option to request supplemental funding designated to support student-faculty collaboration. The RSCA Student Supplement provides up to $1,500 for student assistantship and/or student travel (if permitted by CSUDH) to present at a professional conference or meeting. The Student Supplement is expected to result in students’ authorship or co-authorship of scholarly articles, conference presentations, performances, exhibits, or other outcomes that contribute to the expansion of knowledge and student academic success.

This program is open to all CSUDH members of Unit 3: part-time lecturers, full-time lecturers, probationary tenure-track faculty, and
tenured faculty.

For current application deadlines, visit the research calendar or the InfoReady online applications and submission portal. The program guidelines can be found in the InfoReady portal.
