Resources

The Office of Sponsored Programs offers a range of resources to inform and guide efforts to secure and manage external funding. We encourage you to review and take full advantage of the resources and educational opportunities described in this section

I. BMCC Resources

Institutional Profile: The BMCC Factbook is a principal source of information about Borough of Manhattan Community College and its students updated each academic year. To access this information, please click here.

The Office of Institutional Research and Assessment compiles, maintains, and provides analysis of institutional and other data to support the operation, decision-making, and planning functions of the College. Working with the Dean of Institutional Effectiveness and Strategic Planning, OIRA’s mission is to provide information that is accurate, meaningful and useful to meet the needs of both internal and external constituencies; to support assessment activities and promote the use of results for quality enhancement; to explain and interpret information, making recommendations to decision-makers as appropriate. For more information, please click here.

Institutional Review Boards (IRB):  The IRB Committee functions are now centralized into a CUNY University-wide system called the CUNY Human Research Protection Program (HRPP.)  This office is responsible for the protection of the rights and welfare of human subjects in research projects conducted at CUNY or by CUNY faculty, staff and students and RF CUNY staff. For more information, please click here.

CITI Training:
CUNY subscribes to the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative’s (CITI) research compliance courses to fulfill CUNY’s educational requirements. To determine the training you are required to complete for our grant, please click here.

II. Agency Specific Resources

The following links provide information on preparing and submitting proposals to various agencies:

NSF Proposal and Award Policies and Procedures Guide: document outlining requirements for submitting proposals to the National Science Foundation.

NIH Application and Electronic Submission Information: provides application guidelines for preparing and submitting proposals to the National Institutes of Health.

Grants.gov:  the source to find and apply for federal government grants.

Fastlane: the National Science Foundation (NSF) website for researchers and potential researchers, reviewers, and research administrators and their organizations.

ERA Commons — a virtual meeting place where NIH extramural grantee organizations, grantees, and the public can receive and transmit information about the administration of biomedical and behavioral research.

IV. Sample Proposals

Sample proposals can be helpful to analyze as you prepare to write your own proposal. However please also keep in mind these are “sample” proposals and not necessarily “model” proposals. In reviewing them, keep in mind that some are dated and do not necessarily reflect current funding priorities and proposal requirements of these same grant making agencies. Please also keep in mind these samples are made available as a “learning tool” and may not be used unless consent from the principal investigator is granted.
