The Office of Research oversees many functions, all in support of the Cal Poly Pomona Teacher-Scholar Model. These functions include supporting applications for external contracts and grants (through the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs - ORSP), helping to ensure research compliance (Institutional Research Board - IRB, Animal Care and Use Committee - ACUC), support for the Office of Undergraduate Research, and support for the Technology Transfer/Industry Clinic. We also provide oversight of the many University Centers and Institutes and administer various intramural awards to support research, scholarly and creative activity by faculty and students.
Intramural awards that we administer include, for example, RSCA awards, the Provost Teacher-Scholar Program and Strategic Interdisciplinary Research Grants (SIRG). We also work closely with the Faculty Center for Professional Development and with the post-award Grants and Contracts office to better serve faculty, staff and students from across the university.

We are pleased to announce a second year of funding through the Kellogg FuTURE Program to support undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activities at Cal Poly Pomona:
Kellogg FuTURE Mini-Grants:
Faculty mentors may apply for grants of up to $1,000 to support scholarly and creative activities with undergraduate students. Funds may be applied to various essential needs such as supplies, minor equipment, software, research travel, and preparation of reports and presentations.
The goal is to support a wide range of disciplinary activities, from experimental research and fieldwork, to applied professional experiences, to artistic and creative endeavors.
Kellogg Undergraduate Scholars Program (KUSP):
KUSP provides student scholarships of up to $2,000 to support mentored research or creative activities in a student’s chosen field. The goal is to support undergraduate research engagement of underrepresented students, and to encourage persistence to degree, and pursuit of graduate education. KUSP is open to all first-generation college students, economically disadvantaged students, and returning military veterans. A minimum Cal Poly Pomona GPA of 2.7 is required.
The application deadline for both programs is Tuesday, February 19, 2013.
The Inaugural Cal Poly Pomona Student Research Conference (CPP SRC) will be held on March 1, 2013, at the University Library. This will be for both graduate and undergraduate students.

How to Apply
Each CSU campus appoints a campus coordinator and develops its own procedures for selecting its student delegates to the system-wide competition. Interested students should contact their campus coordinator for information on how their work is to be considered at the campus level. Only those students endorsed by a campus coordinator can enter the statewide competition.
If a student’s work has been selected by the campus for presentation in the system-wide competition, the campus coordinator will submit their name and email address and written Summary for each student to California State University, East Bay, by Monday, March 17, 2014 to email@example.com. Students will then be contacted and directed to a website where they will register.
Who May Apply
Undergraduate or graduate students currently enrolled at any CSU campus as well as alumni/alumnae who received their degrees in Spring, Summer, or Fall 2013 are eligible. The research presented should be appropriate to the student’s discipline and career goals. Proprietary research is excluded. Presentations from all disciplines are invited. There will be separate undergraduate and graduate divisions for each of the following categories (unless a division has four or fewer entrants, in which case undergraduate and graduate divisions may be combined). The California State University, East Bay, steering committee reserves the right to combine or subdivide these categories or to move an entrant from one category to another, as numbers of submissions necessitate. The ten categories are as follows:
• Behavioral and Social Sciences
• Biological and Agricultural Sciences
• Business, Economics, and Public Administration
• Creative Arts and Design (creative projects are welcome—see "Competition Guidelines")
• Engineering and Computer Science
• Health, Nutrition, and Clinical Sciences
• Humanities and Letters
• Physical and Mathematical Sciences
You may access more information at the California State University, East Bay website: www.csueastbay.edu/csusrc.
A campus delegation may include up to ten entries in the ten categories. A small team of students making a single presentation counts as a single entry but each student participant must fill out the Student Delegate Registration Form with demographic and contact information.
governing this written summary are as follows:
• The summary must include the name(s) of the student(s) and the title of the presentation.
• The narrative may not exceed five doubled-spaced pages. Use fonts and margins that ensure legibility.
• Appendices (bibliography, graphs, photographs, or other supplementary
materials) may not exceed three pages.
• Research that has human or animal subjects involvement must have appropriate institutional review.
• It is expected that the student will not make an oral presentation by simply reading directly from this summary.
Students will present their work orally before a jury and an audience. Students will compete by discipline category and, where feasible, by class standing (undergraduate/graduate), as described above in “Who May Apply.” Each student will have ten minutes for an oral presentation of his or her work and five minutes to listen and respond to juror and audience questions. All entrants may use audiovisual materials as appropriate, and presenters are encouraged to use delivery techniques that promote interaction with the audience. Entrants in the Creative Arts and Design category may present an audio and/or visual record of a performance they have given or a work they have created; their oral presentation should focus on the rationale and historical context underlying their interpretation of the material.
Campus coordinators will be notified in writing by the California State University, East Bay’s steering committee of the times of their student delegates’ presentations, local hotel and transportation options, and program details.
Each entry (oral presentation plus written summary) will be judged on the following:
• Clarity of purpose
• Appropriateness of methodology
• Interpretation of results
• Value of the research or creative activity
• Ability of the presenter to articulate the research or creative activity
• Organization of the material presented
• Presenter’s ability to handle questions from the jury and general audience

Based on the recommendations of the jurors, cash awards will be provided to the outstanding presenter and the runner-up in both the undergraduate and graduate divisions of each category. If the undergraduate and graduate divisions of a category have been combined because there are fewer than four presenters in one division, awards will be provided to the outstanding presenter and the runner-up without regard to class standing.
