Recipients of the COR Research Fellowships

The Committee on Research of the Riverside Division of the Academic Senate is pleased to announce the recipients of the COR Research Fellowships for 2013-2014.

COR Research Fellowships constitute a fellowship program administered by the Academic Senate Committee on Research.  Eligibility is restricted to tenured members of the Academic Senate. At least half of these fellowships will be reserved for Associate Professors.

COR Research Fellowships are intended to assist tenured faculty to develop new major research projects. Funds can be used for research-related travel, the purchase of research-related equipment and supplies, research assistance, support for attendance and participation in professional meetings, and a maximum of one course buy-out. Funds may not be used for summer salary. Recipients must submit an extramural grant application within two years of receiving a COR Research Fellowship. Those who do not will be disqualified from applying for another COR Research Fellowship for five years.
