Deadline is Tuesday, May 1, 2018, 5:00 p.m.

The Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC) Seed Program is a funding opportunity for CUNY faculty to leverage research relationships at the ASRC. The program encourages an interdisciplinary approach that spans multiple ASRC Initiatives: Nanoscience, Photonics, Structural Biology, Neuroscience and Environmental Sciences.  These grants will fund research between tenured and tenure track faculty at CUNY colleges and faculty at the ASRC.

We will award five $30,000 grants in Research Foundation funds for a one-year period (July 1, 2018 – June 30, 2019). The primary goal is to seed research that will become the basis of new external grant proposals.

It is strongly encouraged that you discuss your proposal, prior to submission, with as ASRC Investigator to ensure feasibility. However, it is expected that the PI take full responsibility for writing the proposal. 

Complete proposals must be submitted via the online proposal submission form. Please download and carefully review all program guidelines and complete all proposal forms prior to submitting a proposal. Incomplete proposals will not be accepted by the online process.

All required documents are available for download as Microsoft Word documents but must be converted to PDF format after completion and before submission. The online submission form will only accept PDF documents.
