The Faculty Research Support Fund (FRSF) provides in-kind support to CCTR investigators with limited or no funding who wish to initiate a research project or for investigators who may need additional funds to complete a funded research project.

Award Details

Amount awarded is a maximum of $5,000 and must be spent by September 30, 2018. Specifically these funds are intended to:
