The LAUC Research and Professional Development Committee solicits and reviews applications for University-wide research grants. The LAUC Research and Professional Development Committee is composed of a representative from each of the ten LAUC divisions. The Vice-President of LAUC serves as the Chair in a non-voting capacity except to break any ties that may occur in the review process. The Chair of the LAUC Research and Professional Development Committee is responsible for submitting its recommendations on the allocation of funds to the Office of the President and for notifying the LAUC President of funding decisions from the Office of the President.
The University-wide Research Grants for Librarians program is a competitive program open to the members of the Librarians Association of the University of California (LAUC). The purpose of the program is to encourage and provide funding for research projects undertaken by LAUC members.

The guidelines herein are to be used solely for the preparation of applications for funds to be disbursed by the Office of the President upon the recommendation of the LAUC Research and Professional Development Committee to the University Academic Vice-President.
