Change in CUNY Status

An awardee should promptly notify the University Committee on Research Awards of any change in his or her status as a member of The City University of New York full-time instructional staff. Awardees on leave of absence during the award period must also advise the Committee and give assurance that they will return to CUNY at the end of their leave period.


If a PI loses or relinquishes his/her status as a full-time faculty member of City University, any pending grant will be withdrawn and previous awards will terminate. Expenditures legally obligated before the effective date of change will be honored. Faculty members on travia leave may continue to access their awards until the travia has ended.

Award recipients who will not be reappointed the following September 1st, after the effective date of the award, are entitled to use their research award funds until the termination of their current appointment. At that date, the account will be terminated and all remaining funds returned to the program. Such recipients should notify the Research Foundation of their termination date. Awards are not transferable.
