From: Melisa Mendez, Associate Director– Proposal Development, Office of Sponsored Programs & Research

The Grants Proposal System is open and accepting applications for Cycle 48 of the PSC-CUNY Research Awards Program. 

The grant funding will support activities in the creative arts and all academically relevant research in the areas of natural science, social science, and the humanities, including but not limited to research related to curriculum development, improvement in teaching, adaptation of standard educational techniques to special clientele, and the relationship between technical or occupational training and the liberal arts curriculum. To be considered for funding, a proposal must involve original research or creative activities by the Principal Investigator (PI).

The following activities will not be funded: 1) those that support fulfillment of degree requirements of the Principal Investigator-unless, in the opinion of the Review Panel, fulfillment of degree requirements involves significant original scholarly or creative work; 2) the writing of textbooks-unless, in the opinion of the Review Panel, the textbook constitutes a significant scholarly contribution; and 3) the development of a curriculum for specific courses or programs (although research on curriculum, pedagogy and related subjects will be eligible for funding).

The application submission deadline is Thursday, December 15, 2016, by 5PM. If you would like the SPAR office to review your application please submit your proposal at least one week in advance.

The award details remain the same and applicants should follow the Pilot Program Guidelines found on the Research Foundation’s website: PSC-CUNY Research Awards Program

Notification of the award results remains April 15 for Traditional A and B Awards and May 15 for Enhanced Awards.  The budget period for Cycle 48 is July 1, 2017 – June 30, 2018.

The Grants Proposal System User Manual can be found here: Grants Proposal System User Manual.  Please note an attribute was added to the general application tab and applicants must now indicate if interviews will be conducted by selecting yes or no from the drop down box.  This will help in identifying applications that require IRB review. 

If you have forgotten your user ID/password please DO NOT create a new ID, but contact the RF and the information will be forwarded to you.

Click on the following link for sample applications: Sample Applications.

Please Note:

When considering eligibility, the guidelines state that, “Tenured faculty may not receive more than two awards during a three year period of the Program, only one of this may be an Enhanced Award.”  The limit of two awards (only one of which may be an enhanced award) within a three year period for tenured faculty still applies to the Program and awards from cycle 46 and cycle 47 should be considered to determine if tenured faculty are eligible to apply for cycle 48.
