Matadors can access funding in support of student research and other scholarly activities through a variety of funds on campus. These include:
• A.S. Funding for Student Organizations
• A.S. ARRA fund
• The IRA fund
• The University Corporation’s Special Project Fund (Now accessed through the AS ARRA program)
The purpose of Academically Related Reserves Account is to encourage individual (or small group) CSUN undergraduate and graduate students’ intellectual development through partial funding of the costs associated with the creation of original research or other scholarly works (papers, posters, performance pieces, etc.), and their presentation at academic or professional conferences or competitions.
In addition to the A.S. fee, each CSUN student pays $15 per semester for the Instructionally Related Activity (IRA) fee. Different from the A.S. Academically Related Reserve Account (ARRA), the IRA fee provides funding for course-related projects or activities that extend beyond those activities funded through the State University Fee.
