Here at CSUPERB we are still entering the grant review season. Many (but not all, see below) of our grants programs closed on February 1st and this leads to a flurry of activity in preparation for grant review, including administrative review of all the proposals to ensure they meet eligibility criteria before we undergo reviewer assignments. I wanted to thank in advance all the reviewers who have responded to our request for service- we have the largest pool of reviewers ever!

2021 Presidents’ Commission Scholars Program
CSUPERB is currently accepting proposals for the 2021 Presidents’ Commission Scholars Program. The Program aims to increase the number of lower-division undergraduate students who have access to a full-time research experience in the CSU. This year, because of the COVID-19 pandemic we are allowing applicants flexibility in their research experience. Students can perform the research over Summer 2021 or opt to stretch it out over the following fall and spring semesters of the 2021/22 Academic Year. Students will conduct biotechnology-related laboratory-, field-, clinic- or community-based research for the first time. Sponsoring faculty mentors will receive funding to support their research program.
Links to all requests for proposals (RFPs) and nominations can be found at the CSUPERB home page (www.calstate.edu/csuperb
). All deadlines are at 5 p.m. pacific time.
