Link to PSC CUNY Award Page

What is the difference between Regular Cycle and Out-of-Cycle Submissions?

All eligible faculty can apply for the "Regular Cycle" competition. However, only new faculty hired in the current year and has not worked for a previous CUNY college as a full-time professor can apply for the "Out of Cycle" competition. If you have any questions about the deadlines, please feel free to contact Melisa Mendez by email or at (646) 312-2207.

How do I submit a PSC CUNY proposal?

All proposals must be submitted via the electronic system. If your proposal budget requires Chair and Dean approval b/c it contains Release Time, you must provide SPAR with a copy of the email approval or memo on or before the deadline.

Can I submit a proposal for the same project more than once to the program?

Yes. Even if you are unsuccessful or if you applied and were awarded in the previous cycle, you can submit only one proposal per competition cycle (once per year--every Fall) as long as you are eligible to apply.
