CFA Internal Grant 2024-2025 Cycle


Tenured and tenure-track faculty, who are in their 3rd year (or beyond) at LMU, are eligible for the 2024-2025 CFA Internal Continuing Faculty Research Grant. (Faculty apply for this grant during the academic year 2023-2024 and, if granted, funds become available during the academic year 2024-2025.)  CFA Internal Continuing Faculty Research Grants are given in support of original scholarship (e.g. research, writing, creative work). Preference will be given to projects that will prepare the faculty member to pursue ongoing or more complex scholarship and/or to fund work that is a good candidate for future external grant support. You may apply for a stand-alone project that will be completed or a portion of a larger project (such as a chapter in a book). 

There are two variations of CFA Internal Continuing Faculty Research Grants: Open Funding and Mission-Based Funding. These two variations on a single grant will rotate every other year. For 2024-2025, faculty will apply for Open Funding, which considers all original scholarly and creative works.  In alignment with the College’s ongoing commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and antiracism, CFA’s internal continuing faculty research grant initiative will place the highest priority on work that furthers this commitment in its multiple manifestations.  For purposes of this funding priority, projects related to internationalization are considered part of the larger diversity, equity, inclusion, and antiracism initiative – both for the College and the University at large.

CFA Internal Continuing Faculty Research Grants (under either variation) must culminate in a project suitable for professional distribution (e.g. scholarly and creative work that is published or made public through print distribution and/or presentation in a public forum; or concrete curricular outcomes that can be publicly shared with colleagues and implemented as part of one’s teaching). Evidence of accomplishment must be documented in the required Continuing CFA Research Grants Outcome Report.


Please see the application for further details. For procedural and/or content-based questions, please contact Associate Dean Michele Hammers.
