» Office of Research Faculty Internal Funding Opportunities

The application deadline for the 2023-2024 round of FGRSC funding has closed. Please check back for the announcement of the 2024-2025 FGRSC round.

Chapman University’s Office of Research administers the Faculty Grant for Research, Scholarship and Creative Activities (FGRSC). This internal grant program provides competitive, merit-based support for research, scholarly, and creative activities in all disciplines and fields. The FGRSC supports projects that will lead to the development of new and innovative scholarship and creative activity or the production of publications, attract external funding, increase competitiveness for external awards, and enhance the national visibility and reputation of Chapman faculty. Projects are strongly encouraged that involve undergraduate and graduate students when their involvement is integral to the anticipated outcomes of the proposed project. All full-time tenure track faculty are eligible for this program. Non-tenure track faculty applicants should have expectations of scholarship to be eligible.

The FGRSC encourages proposals from:

  • Early-career faculty members initiating new projects.
  • Mid-career faculty members pursuing new directions in their research, scholarship, and creative activity.
  • Mid-career faculty members seeking to re-vitalize an on-going research, scholarship, or creative activity after a gap in activity due to:
    • A period of exceptional commitment to departmental, university, and professional service; or
    • Personal or family circumstances.
