Congratulations to ISG Professor Bharat Venkat who among 30 UCLA Faculty members was selected for a Career Development Award granted by the Office of Equity Diversity & Inclusion (EDI). EDI annually solicits applications for the Faculty Career Development Award program (FCDA). Faculty Career Development Awards are given annually to regular rank Assistant Professors and Assistant Professors in-Residence, providing research support at a critical time in the pre-tenure stage. The funding is to assist faculty as they advance an on-going research project, creative activity, or as they embark on a new project. Awards are made in the form of a lump-sum of $5,000 – $15,000 in research funds.
