The Office of Research is committed to supporting research excellence at CUNY community colleges. Since 2006, the Community College Research Grant Program has funded collaborative, interdisciplinary, and undergraduate research projects resulting in faculty and student development. For the 2017-2018 competition, the program will accept proposals from faculty across all disciplines for awards of up to $10,000. Proposals may be submitted by individual faculty or collaborative teams. We encourage applications that involve undergraduate students.

The submission deadline is December 1, 2017.  We will announce the awards by the end of February, so that project work may commence in the summer of 2018.  We expect to make 5-10 CCRG awards in 2018.

There will be a separate submission process for the Pedagogical Research Grant program in the Spring of 2018.
