Internal Research Grants

About Internal Grants

Internal grant funds are available to CSU Chico faculty to support original research, scholarship and creative activities, and are intended to foster continuing disciplinary professional growth, productivity, and achievement.

Sources of Funds

Funds for the different internal grants programs are derived from different sources, including the CSU Chancellor's Office and CSU Chico Division of Academic Affairs (Provost), among others.

Internal Grants Portal

This web-based Internal Grants Portal(opens in new window), initiated in late 2015, provides faculty an easy-to-use system to apply for internal research grants at CSU Chico. The portal includes grant submittal, review and approval, and project reporting functions.
