UCCS Faculty SeedGrants

Committee on Research and Creative Works (CRCW)

Applications Due March 5, 2024 by 5pm


For nearly a decade, UCCS has allocated funding, on a competitive basis, to support the research and creative agendas of our tenured and tenure-track faculty in every program area. The objectives of this investment program are to promote research excellence, to help early career tenure-track faculty members establish research programs, and to assist faculty members in becoming nationally competitive when seeking funding from sources external to UCCS.

The proposals submitted under this funding program are evaluated by our Committee on Research and Creative Works (CRCW) which is composed of previous award winners and other appointed faculty from across campus. See our list of the most recent CRCW winners here. The CRCW selects awardees in accordance with the eligibility and evaluation criteria specified in the application. 


In addition to the traditional $7,500 awards, the Office of Research is once again able to support a very limited number of collaborative CRCW projects –up to $15,000 for projects that include at least two (2) faculty working together from different departments on campus.
