The Grants Proposal System (GPS) is now open for Cycle 53 applications to the PSC-CUNY Grant program. Please have your grant application submitted into the system by Thursday, Dec. 9 so that the Office of Sponsored Programs and Research can review it prior to final submission. The final submission deadline is 11:59pm on Wednesday, Dec. 15, 2021.

The PSC-CUNY, Professional Staff Congress of The City University of New York Research Award was established as a major vehicle for the University’s encouragement and support of research, and to leverage external funding. It seeks to enhance the University’s role as a research institution and  further the professional growth and development of its researchers. There are three categories of awards with a maximum award of $12,000. The program is a key funding source for smaller-scale projects and/or pilot data studies. Success rates of applications are higher than you will find with other sponsors. Therefore, we strongly encourage you to prepare and submit a proposal to this CUNY-wide program.

You can find information about eligibility, application preparation, criteria for evaluation, and the review process online.

There will be no exceptions for late submissions under any circumstances. The PSC review committees will NOT review late requests. If your submission is not in the GPS by 11:59pm on Dec. 15,  you will need to wait until Cycle 54 to reapply.

And please remember, the CSI internal review date is Dec. 9.
