Award Pre-Proposal Support

RFCUNY offers CUNY faculty, graduate and doctoral students assistance in identifying and obtaining extramural funding to support their research, education, training, curriculum development and other related activities. One-on-one proposal consultations, grant-writing workshops and related webinars are available through RFCUNY’s Office of Award Pre-Proposal Support (APPS).

Consulting with APPS

Consultations are intended to assist with proposal development, help faculty identify sources of funding support, and provide an opportunity to exchange ideas fluidly in an informal setting. A draft proposal or summary should be made available to APPS in advance of a consultation. Appointments may be scheduled by emailing APPS.

Attending APPS Workshops/Forums

Workshops and forums offered by APPS are designed for faculty interested in learning more about the proposal development process. Grant writing and other workshops that focus on specific topics are also available. Participating in workshops help faculty sharpen skills, meet leaders in their field of study, form new relationships, and strengthen existing ones.

Other Activity

APPS posts a monthly digest of CUNY’s grant and research-related activities to centralize the accessibility of research and award information and maintain the connection among faculty, administrators, and staff.
