The Division of Research & Innovation is excited to announce the new Level-Up Grant: Reaching the Next Level in your Research, Scholarship,and Creative Activities. This SJSU grant program is designed to help our faculty take their RSCA activity to the next level.

The Level-Up grant provides resources for conducting specific RSCA projects that build capacity and increase competitiveness for larger extramural funding. All proposals must identify a specific “target” extramural grant program to which the Principal Investigator (PI) will apply based on the work accomplished under the Level-Up grant. The Level-Up grant is available to SJSU RSCA projects led by individual PIs, multidisciplinary teams, and multi-institutional teams in award amounts of $10,000 or $20,000 - see funding categories, amounts, eligibility requirements, and all other details here.

Given the current and likely future COVID-19 restrictions, all proposed RSCA work under this grant must be compatible with the SJSU RSCA Adaptation Plan as laid out for Phase 2, given that any research compatible with Phase 2 can be conducted under the later Phase 3 and Phase 4. This requirement may be revised prior to the final deadline if conditions change significantly.

We look forward to receiving your proposals.
