Faculty Research Grants



The University of San Diego considers research to be an integral part of the faculty's work, and necessary to the liberal arts education offered to students. Faculty Research Grants are a primary means of supporting such scholarship in the College of Arts and Sciences. Scholarship of discovery, application, integration, and pedagogy proposals are all supported through the grant program.
