Instructionally Related Activities

Instructionally Related Activities (IRA)

“Instructionally Related Activities (IRA) are defined as “activities and experiences that are partially sponsored by an academic discipline or department and which are integrally related to the function of instructional offerings.”

 

The IRA Fund was established to provide support of essential educational experiences and activities that aid and supplement the fundamental educational mission of Cal State Fullerton.

 

An instructionally related activity should provide for the performance, competition, or laboratory experience outside of, but related to, the formal instructional offerings at Cal State Fullerton. The IRA fee is one of the several mandatory CSU student fees.”

2023-2024 IRA Application Process

We are pleased to announce that effective August 22, 2022, the Instructionally Related Activities (IRA) application portal opens for project proposals with performance expectations between July 1, 2023, and June 30, 2024.

 

The application portal will close September 23, 2022.

 

If you are unfamiliar with IRA funding, the Instructionally Related Activities fee is category II fee paid by students. In accordance with ED Code 89230, the fee provides funding for educational experiences and activities directly related to courses offered at the university. Every year, the IRA Committee accepts funding proposals and submits a proposed budget to the Vice President Academic Affairs/Provost, Vice President Student Affairs, and the University President.

 

To apply for 2023-24 funds, you will be required to complete the IRA Funding Orientation through the Employee Training Center (ETC). Sign up here to receive an invitation to complete the Funding Orientation session. Completion of this orientation is required for your proposal application to be considered for funding.

 

Thank you for helping to engage our students with activities that enrich the student learning experience.
