D. FUNDING AVAILABLE
The University of California Office of the President allocates funds to the University-wide Research Grant Program for Librarians. Funds are allocated to support research by both unit and non-unit members.
2007/2008 Fiscal Year allocations
Bargaining Unit: $24,300.00
Non-Unit: $ 8,100.00
The amount of funds recommended for award will not exceed the amount available for allocation. The total funds allocated in any year will depend on the quality of the research proposals received. The University-wide LAUC Research and Professional Development Committee is not obligated to award all of the funds available if the proposals received do not meet the standards set by the Committee.
E. FUNDING PERIOD
Research grants will be awarded annually according to the published schedules for submission and review and are subject to the limitations of available funding. Funds are available July 1. There are no limitations on how many times an individual may apply for funding for research projects; each proposal will be judged according to established criteria. There are no time limitations on multi-year grant proposals; however, all projects compete on an annual basis for available funding.
F. DUAL-LEVEL FUNDING
Applications may be funded in part from campus funds and in part from University-wide funds. Applicants may wish to structure proposals with this in mind.
G. MULTI-CAMPUS PROPOSALS
Multi-campus proposals are eligible for consideration and will be reviewed and evaluated equally with single-campus proposals. Multi-campus proposals shall be submitted to the divisional research committees and are subject independently to each division's guidelines and criteria for evaluation. Multi-campus proposals must clearly identify either a Principal Investigator or one contact person with whom the LAUC Research and Professional Development Committee can communicate for additional information and for notification of the Committee's recommendations. The chair of the divisional research committee at the campus where the Principal Investigator or contact person is located will forward the proposal to the Chair of the LAUC Research and Professional Development Committee.
Applicants are responsible for ensuring that proposals to be forwarded to the University-wide LAUC Research and Professional Development are submitted to the chair of the divisional research committee by the division's announced deadline. The Chair of the divisional research committee is responsible for submitting all proposals to be reviewed by the University-wide LAUC Research and Professional Development Committee to the Chair of the University-wide LAUC Research and Professional Development Committee by the announced deadline for submission. So that all proposals can be given equal time for review, it is essential to meet the deadlines stated in the Call for Proposals calendar. The Committee reserves the right to not consider late proposals.
The University-wide LAUC Research and Professional Development Committee will forward to the Office of the President its recommendations for funding. Applicants will be notified by the Committee Chair of the final decision of the Office of the President. The Committee will notify the LAUC President and appropriate division chairs of the final funding decisions. File copies of all successful applications will be maintained in the LAUC Archives and will be made available on the LAUC website.
