Incentives Program for Faculty Research Grant Development

October 3, 2023

The Office of Research & Sponsored Programs is requesting applications for assigned time funding for the fall 2024 and spring 2025 semesters, or summer salary for summer 2024

ABOUT: The purpose of the Faculty Research Incentive Award Program is to stimulate faculty members to develop and submit full proposals to external funding agencies and organizations for research and educational projects. Applications to develop full proposals on any fundable topic are eligible providing they seek to advance or promulgate the mission of Cal Poly Humboldt. In accepting an Award, a Principal Investigator (PI) commits to develop and submit a full proposal for external funding through the Office of Research & Sponsored Programs.

Applications from both single PIs and collaborative applications are welcome. Collaborative applications would be those involving faculty from across the disciplines that promote interdisciplinary, integrative research and/or educational initiatives and that include regional and disciplinary diversity. Applications seeking assigned time funding to develop new, previously un-submitted full proposals shall be considered; applications seeking assigned time to revise and re-submit existing proposals and/or Pre-Proposals shall not be considered.


ELIGIBILITY: All Cal Poly Humboldt tenured/tenure-track faculty, along with research associates are eligible to apply. For more information, please contact Erika Wright, Research Development Lead, at


APPLY: Submit applications through Cal Poly Humboldt’s InfoReady portal which is accessible through Engagement Hub.
