RCA Faculty Awards Program


Congratulations to the awardees of the 2018-19 RCA Faculty Awards Program!

Details about the 2019-20 competition will be available in Fall 2018.

The purpose of the RCA Awards Program is to support faculty research, scholarly, and creative activity, and to encourage faculty contributions to their disciplines. This program is funded in part through the CSU Chancellor's Office and Academic Affairs. It is administered by the RCA Subcommittee with support from the Office of Research, Innovation, and Economic Development.

Award recipients must produce a scholarly deliverable, such as an article or manuscript to be submitted for peer-reviewed publication, or a grant proposal, juried exhibition, performance, etc. Award recipients must also submit a required project report documenting the results of their work at the conclusion of the funding period.

All Unit 3 faculty are eligible and encouraged to apply (including full-time faculty, part-time faculty, temporary faculty, probationary and tenured faculty, lecturers, coaches, librarians, and counselors, as outlined in the Unit 3 Bargaining Agreement).
