Planning Grant & IRG from CUNY

The Office of Research is pleased to announce the two new internal grant programs, the Planning Grant Program (PG) & the Interdisciplinary Research Grant (IRG).

The Planning Grant Program: This program seeks to catalyze collaborative grant-seeking and encourage a culture of multidisciplinary, convergent, team-based science with the potential to transform the University. This program will support multi-college research teams in preparing and submitting complex, large-scale, center-type proposals to external funding agencies and organizations. 

Funds will support efforts to tackle complex, multi-faced research questions that are better addressed by teams than individuals. Partnerships across departments, colleges, and disciplines are required. Each team is eligible to request up to $20,000 for an award period of up to one year. Up to 5 awards will be made. Please see the Program Guidelines for more information

Planning Grant LOI Deadline: November 15, 2021

Interdisciplinary Research Grant: This grant program will support collaborative research in the following significant areas: Climate science, Data science/artificial intelligence, and Public health.

We invite interdisciplinary proposals that address urgent scientific and societal challenges through convergent research (transdisciplinary research with societal impact). The program will fund projects that join expertise across disciplines and stipulate a clear path to new external funding. A minimum of two investigators are required: one PI and one Co-PI, ideally from another CUNY college, school, and/or center. Multi-PI teams are encouraged. The program will fund up to eight (8) collaborative research projects with budgets not exceeding $40,000. Please see the IRG Program Guidelines.

IRG Application Deadline: December 6, 2021

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the programs, please contact the University Dean for Research, Delaram Kahrobaei (delaram.kahrobaei@cuny.edu).
