CUNY Collaborative Incentive Research Grant (CIRG) Program -Round 21
CUNY is now accepting application for the CIRG program.
The Collaborative Incentive Research Grants Program (CIRG) funds faculty research projects in their preliminary stages. The program encourages an interdisciplinary approach with a focus on participation from two or more CUNY campuses. The primary goal is to seed research that will become the basis of new external grant proposals. The program is open to research projects in all disciplines. Investigators who wish to focus on a problem within a single discipline must be from separate CUNY colleges, while those researchers developing a cross-disciplinary project may be on the same campus if they are from different academic departments. Each proposal should be structured to reflect the engagement of all investigators.
More details and guidelines can be found here: http://www.cuny.edu/research/faculty-resources/internal-funding-programs/collaborative-incentive-grant.html
Deadline: Friday, March 7, 2014 @5:00pm est
