CUNY Research Scholars Program (CRSP) 2016-2017

The CUNY Research Scholars Program is a year-long program which provides full-time students enrolled in associate degree programs with funded opportunities
for laboratory research with a faculty mentor. In addition to participation in research, the program includes mandatory workshops on lab safety, responsible conduct in research, and other research-related skills. Students must also complete training through Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI), if not done already, and submit their CITI certification within the first six weeks of the program; submit an abstract, prepare a poster and participate in the poster sessions towards the end of the fall and spring semester; and participate in the CUNY-wide summer symposium at the conclusion of the program.

Emerging Scholars Program (ESP) Fall 2016

The Emerging Scholars Program provides a $500 stipend for full-time students (enrolled for 12 or more credits) and a $250 stipend for part-time students (enrolled in 11 or fewer credits) for conducting research with a faculty member. The purpose of the program is to provide students with an opportunity to apply what was learned in the class room to discover new knowledge, to solve real-world problems and to develop professionally while working with faculty to advance scholarly endeavors. The program includes specially designed workshops offered by the Honors Scholars and other programs and participation in a biannual poster session. Some funding for student travel to professional conferences to present results is also available. This is the second part of a two-part application, to be filled out by the student interested in participating in the Emerging Scholars program in Fall 2016.
