Faculty Research Incentive Grants (FRIG)

The purpose of the Faculty Research Incentive Grant (FRIG) program is to provide an incentive for faculty to write a grant proposal for external funding, encouraging research, scholarly and/or creative activity at Sacramento State. Funds to support this program come from the Academic Affairs portion of recovered indirect costs from current sponsored activity and from University Enterprises, Inc.
