The College Academy of Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity

The College Academy of Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity (CARSCA), a unit of the College of Arts and Sciences, offers financial support to faculty involved in innovative research, creative, and professional projects.

The committee welcomes proposals for any project-related need, including travel, equipment, supplies, honoraria for outside speakers, or salary (although salary for the principal investigator will only be considered under special circumstances). This funding is not intended to support the research, scholarship, and creative activity faculty would already be doing; rather, it should promote advanced levels of excellence in the proposed activity.

CARSCA awards funding each spring and fall semester. All permanent College faculty members are eligible, and groups of faculty, including entire departments, may apply.
