Research Support and Development
San Diego State University encourages and supports the advancement of research. The
San Diego State University Research Foundation
coordinates and manages extramural support for the SDSU community.
Internal support opportunities are available through the University Grants Program (UGP). The University Grants Program (UGP) was created to integrate three independent funding mechanisms through which faculty presently derive internal support for creative and scholarly research. This unique program combines funding opportunities available through the Faculty Development Program (FDP), Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity (RSCA) and the Faculty Grant-In-Aid (GIA) programs.
Students are also able to apply for support of their research through various programs.
Sharing of the knowledge gained and recognition of outstanding accomplishments also occurs though campus sponsored lectures and related events.
