The Research Initiative for Summer Engagement (RISE) program provides financial support to faculty members at senior and regional campuses for summer salary, research supplies, travel related to research and undergraduate student support. Faculty members can also use these funds to spend the summer collaborating with USC Columbia faculty members.
