The Grants Office is committed to supporting the College’s faculty and staff in their efforts to seek and secure external funding for special programs, instructional support, community education projects and their own individual research activities. We assist the College community in finding additional resources for ideas that support and enhance the mission of the College.
The Grants Office provides training and technical assistance to identify funding opportunities, prepare and submit proposals, estimate project costs and prepare budgets, and design evaluation plans. Our workshops are offered throughout the year on these various topics. We can also arrange a session on a specific topic of your choice. In addition, we assist in coordinating all grant application submissions and provide the necessary follow-up.
Once an award has been made, The Grants office serves as liaison to the funding sponsor and, with the participation of the Research Foundation of CUNY, handles all post-award administrative and fiscal issues. We assist principal investigators, project directors and coordinators in the hiring of all project personnel, the purchase of all materials, services and equipment, in keeping with Research Foundation policies and procedures, and provide guidance in all contract compliance issues.
In this era of new technologies, many proposals are now submitted online. We are the College’s authorized administrator for the web-based submission of proposals to the U.S. Department of Education, National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health and most federal government agencies. We ask that you come by and notify us early in the process of your intent to electronically submit an application.
