CSU-ERFA grants are available to CSU-ERFSA members to support research and creative projects that are in accordance with the following goals:
- Scholarly research on issues important to the retiree as a continuing member of an academic discipline or community.
- Research and scholarly projects that contribute to the quality of life of the retirees in the University system;
- Research pertaining to the retirement concerns of faculty/staff/administrators within the California State University System; and
- Research and creative projects that contribute to a given academic discipline.
CSU-ERFSA encourages CSU-ERFSA members involved in research and creative projects to apply for a grant. The small grant program is competitive, with past awards generally ranging from $100-$1,000, depending upon the number of proposals and the amount of money made available for grants by the CSU-ERFA Foundation. Preference is given to first time grant applicants when grant proposals are of equal merit.
Applications should be sent electronically to the CSU-ERFSA office at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 2:00 p.m. PDT October 31, 2022. Awards will be announced in December 2022.
Grant guidelines and application forms are available on our Grant Awards Program page. (Note also that if you are not currently a member of CSU-ERFSA but eligible to join our organization, you may apply for a grant provided that you submit a membership application prior to or with your grant application. See our membership page for more details.)
