Research Allowance Program (RAP)

The COR Research Allowance Program (RAP) is a program that provides financial support for research-related activities of Senate faculty at UCLA. This new program replaces previous funding programs such as the Faculty Research Grant (FRG) and the Research Enabling Grant (REG). The maximum amount that can be requested through this program is $5,000 per funding cycle (fiscal year). COR will determine the amount funded after administrative review of submitted applications, non-overlap with other research funding available to the investigator, and the investigator’s prior record of scholarly productivity in the use of funds from the Faculty Grants Program. RAP funds provide financial support for faculty academic research, and should not be used for other academic responsibilities such as teaching and university service. This program does not replace the Conference Travel Grant Program, which runs concurrently with available funding on a first-come, first-serve basis.

  • Eligible Faculty may apply for one faculty research grant per academic year.
  • $5,000 maximum
  • Application Period (2024-25 funding cycle): January 31, 2024, 9:00 a.m. to February 28, 2024, 5:00 p.m. PST
Applicants must review the RAP Policies and Guidelines before applying for funding. Applications with missing information will be considered incomplete and will not be processed.
