SJSU_ERFA Supports SJSU Faculty with
Faculty Research and Creative Activity Awards
Inaugurated in AY 2014-2015, the ERFA Faculty Research and Creative Activity Awards of $2500 have supported two faculty members yearly in order to advance the careers of the awardees by funding their scholarly and creative activities.
Current winners are:
Melinda Simon – Department of Biomedical Engineering (2019-2020)
Gilles Muller – Department of Chemistry (2019-2020)
Wes Maciejewski – Department of Mathematics & Statistics (2019-2020)
For more information about these awards and a list of past winners you can download a brief fact sheet (pdf) or visit the Center for Faculty Development or read about the awards in the Provost’s newsletter.
You can make a tax deductable donation (unlike your dues) to support SJSU_ERFA Faculty Research and Creative Activity Awards fund. Send a check made out to the “Tower Foundation” (in the “memo” or “notes” line write: “ERFA Faculty Award”) to the ERFA Treasurer:
