We will then complete an internal proposal review/approval via our CSUMB Kuali system by the final ARI deadline of 3/26/21 at 5 pm. Note: CSUMB deadline dates are different than what is printed in the ARI Request for Proposals 21-22 document.

Funding: $36,156 available for CSUMB's ARI Campus Grants during Fiscal Year 2021-2022. Projects can span a period of performance of up to 3 years between 7/1/21-6/30/24. This is with an expectation that CSUMB will receive an additional $90K in each FY (FY 2022-2023 and FY 2023-2024).

RFP/Guidelines: The ARI RFP/Guidelines (contains general information, formatting instructions, and proposal guidelines) can be found at the ARI InfoReady site and Policy & Procedure Manual (PPM) is on the ARI website.

Eligibility: Per ARI requirements, Project Directors must have "PI" status with CSUMB (tenured, tenure-track faculty or Adjunct Research Faculty or MPPs).

Match Requirement: All ARI funding must be matched at a 1:1 minimum, with non-CSU general fund/university dollars, and with at least 25% of the documented match as cash and the rest can be in-kind.
