LAUC Research Grants

See the LAUC Systemwide Research and Professional Development Committee page for current:

  • What Projects Have/Have Not Been Funded in the Past

Funding for projects approved by RPD Committee and the Office of the President will be available July 1 of the next fiscal year. Projects should be planned for implementation after that date. Also, since rolling over funds into the next year is not a routine process, funds should be spent during the year in which they are awarded.

Remember that you may request funds to cover the cost of a replacement so that you may take time off to do your research. The level and length of this replacement is negotiated individually on a case-by-case basis. If your proposal includes replacement funding, this must be discussed with your immediate supervisor, AUL and University Librarian before you submit your request, and the University Librarian must sign the paper copy cover sheet to approve “released time.”

If you have any questions about research funding, please contact the Current RPD Chair.
