Funding

The Computational and Spatial Analysis (CSA) Core will work with you to accommodate funding your work with the CSA Core. Contact the CSA Core for assistance with identifying the requirements for your project and developing budget estimates.

For awarded projects, principal investigators are expected to support the time and effort of CSA staff assigned to your project using project funding. CSA Core staff may be contracted on a short-term, as-needed basis to assist with research tasks or on a long-term, multi-year basis to staff your research team.

Several options are available to support pre-award studies. The Social Science Research Institute (SSRI) offers financial support for researchers working in the social sciences. Two levels of SSRI funding are available. Either could be used to cover the costs of the CSA Core services.

Researchers associated with the Population Research Institute (PRI) may seek a PRI seed grant award.

The CSA Core also provides pilot hours to support the development of proposals involving the application of Geographic Information Analysis (GIA). The GIA pilot hours provide up to 10 hours of spatial analysis and statistical support.
