We are working on putting more content on this page. 

If you are seeking funding, Annie Weaver ( is available to assist.  



"Requests for Proposals for the FY 2020-21 Board of Regents Support Fund (BoRSF) competitive cycle are now available at and the annual memo containing additional information is attached. Please notify anyone on your campus who might be interested in submitting a proposal.

Note that the memo addresses changes to the regional meetings with program managers due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis and the uncertainty of business travel for state employees. Regional meetings will be conducted via Zoom in 2020, but will continue to include opportunities for potential applicants to receive a general overview of the BoRSF and meet one-on-one with program managers. Additional information will be provided in early August.

Thanks very much for your help in making Louisiana’s postsecondary education community aware of the competitive opportunities available through the BoRSF. We look forward to working with your faculty and staff in the coming year."
