Grants & Other Funding

Aquiring Grants and Other Research Funding

It is important for faculty and departments to apply for external research and curriculum grants. The CU Denver Office of Grants and Contracts provides extensive information and services to faculty seeking research dollars.

CLAS grant proposals require the signatures of the Chair and Dean. When a grant proposal requires an institutional match, the Dean’s Office will ask the Chair’s opinion on the importance of that proposal relative to other proposals in the department. CLAS requires 5% of the research salary be paid for by the grant (though this may be waived for small grants). For a faculty member to receive a funded course release, the Dean’s Office requires 10% of salary for the first course release and 15% for each subsequent course release.
