Over the last decade increasing emphasis has been placed on the important role that community colleges play in America’s higher education system. Prompted by both governmental and University initiatives, momentum has been building to launch new programs and reforms that will increase the effectiveness and impact of community colleges on the success of students who enter the workforce or transfer to a baccalaureate-awarding school.
In past years the CUNY Community College Collaborative Incentive Research Grant (C3IRG) program has provided faculty with grants to fund research in a wide variety of areas. The C3IRG program is now being replaced with the Community College Research Grant program. Funds from this program will support faculty research at CUNY community colleges through two distinct tracks. Track 1 of the program supports for pedagogical research. Track 2 supports faculty and students who participate in mentored research experiences.
NOTE: The application deadline was Friday, April 1, 2016. The workshop registration deadline was Wednesday, January 13, 2016.
