Faculty Support Grants



The Faculty Support Grants (FSG) are funded by funds from the Office of the Chancellor and the Cal State East Bay Division of Academic Affairs.  They are intended as “seed grants” to promote the development of new or expanded research, scholarship, and creative activities (RSCA) by faculty.  Successful proposals will identify one or more specific products that will result from the project such as a publication in a peer-reviewed journal, submission of a grant proposal to an external sponsor, a public performance and/or juried competition. 

Requests for proposals are usually released each semester on InfoReady; please check for current opportunities. Proposal documents including the Request for Proposals, the proposal template, budget template and review rubric are available on InfoReady.

Faculty Support Grant award recipients may consult the Faculty Support Grants - Award Administration Guide for instructions/guidance on how to spend their funds.

The next call for proposals to the FSG program is expected during the Spring 2020 semester for AY 2021-22.
