CUNY Research in the Classroom Program - Deadline September 2016

The office of Vice Chancellor for Research is pleased to announce a new grant program to promote integration of faculty research projects into the undergraduate curriculum.  Up to six awards will be made this fall for proposals that explore creative ways to place authentic research into the classroom. 

Faculty Fellowship Publication Program - Deadline October 2016

The Faculty Fellowship Publication Program (FFPP), sponsored by the Office of the Dean for Recruitment and Diversity, aims at advancing CUNY’s institutional goal of a diverse professoriate. The University-wide initiative assists full-time untenured faculty in the design and execution of writing projects essential to progress toward tenure. Discipline-based writing groups of peers from across the University, facilitated by senior faculty members, provide fellows with feedback on their work, which may include scholarly articles for juried journals, books for academic presses, or, in some instances, creative writing.

Diversity Projects Development Fund - Deadline October 2016

The Vice Chancellor for Human Resources Management established the Diversity Projects Development Fund to support scholarly research projects and other educational activities for or about populations that are traditionally under-represented within higher education. The purpose of the Fund is to assist in the development of educational projects, scholarly research, creative endeavors, and professional activities which promote diversity, multiculturalism, affirmative action, and non-discrimination on the basis of the following categories: race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender status, disability, genetic predisposition or carrier status, alienage or citizenship, veteran or marital status. Projects that are sustainable, replicable, or with potential for University-wide impact are particularly encouraged.

The Professional Staff Congress-City University of New York (PSC-CUNY) Research Award Program was established as a major vehicle for the University's encouragement and support of faculty research and leverage external funding. It seeks to enhance the University's role as a research institution, further the professional growth and development of its faculty, and provide support for both the established and the younger scholar. Awards are distributed by the University Committee on Research Awards, a faculty committee, and administered by the Research Foundation of CUNY.
