Chancellor's Research Faculty Scholars (CRFS) Program

The Chancellor's Research Faculty Scholar (CRFS) Program (formerly called the Chancellor's Research Fellowship Program) and applications were due Thursday, March 21, 2024, and the competition is now closed. CRFS Guidelines and Application Form can still be accessed for reference only.

This program provides support to promising scholars and their mentors to facilitate completion of a specific project. The objectives are:

  • to identify faculty with strong potential for obtaining external funding for research; 
  • to provide additional research support that will help protégés and mentors succeed in their research agendas; 
  • to facilitate the building of internal and external partnerships.

Faculty scholars who demonstrate a strong potential for research select a mentor who can help them enhance their research program to become competitive for external funding. Mentors should have a successful record of research publication and external funding and possess the ability to successfully mentor research protégés. Please read the guidelines for more detailed information about eligibility and the selection process and criteria.
