“The Research Society on Alcoholism (RSA) Fundraising and Initiatives Committee (FRIC) has 3 major missions:  1) Formulate new initiatives for RSA involvement that are consistent with the overall RSA mission; 2) Administer the RSA Doctoral Student Small Grants Program to provide pilot support of novel research by young investigators, particularly involving increasingly diverse young investigators; and 3) Formulate and pursue strategies to raise funds to support RSA initiatives. In particular, the RSA Fundraising and Initiatives Committee will seek to develop and implement a plan to increase RSA funding from private and public sources. The long-term goal of the Fundraising and Initiatives Committee efforts will be to enable enlarging the strategic mission of RSA insofar as education, communication and research support.”
