PSC CUNY Research Award Program

PSC CUNY Research Award Program

The PSC-CUNY Research Award Program provides funding to 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).

Awards are made in each of the following three categories:

  • Traditional A Awards: of up to $3,500
  • Traditional B Awards: of more than $3,600 and up to $6,000
  • Enhanced Awards: of more than $6,500 and up to $12,000
