Con Edison Social & Behavioral Research Award

This is an opportunity for FACULTY. If awarded a grant, faculty will be able to hire STUDENTS to work on the project.

Submission Deadline: Wednesday, May 1, 2019

In 2014, eight residents of East Harlem lost their lives when two buildings were destroyed by a natural gas explosion and the resulting fire.  People in the area recounted smelling gas in the days leading up to the incident, but no one had reported the gas odor until shortly before the explosion. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigated the incident and determined that natural gas from a compromised gas line connection in the street had leaked and migrated into one of the buildings where it ignited.

In support of Con Edison’s goal of increasing public awareness of gas safety and of the importance of reporting natural gas odors, the CUNY Office of K-16 Initiatives is requesting proposals for behavioral research projects that aim to better understand the factors that may or may not prompt community members to contact 911 or Con Edison when they detect a gas leak or gas odor.

Projects relevant to human behavioral responses to detecting and reporting natural gas odors will be considered.  This research will be used to inform and enhance Con Edison’s public outreach, superintendent training curriculum, and other gas safety programs.

The grant funding is for one year (August 1, 2019 – July 31, 2020). We anticipate awarding 5-8 projects with funding levels of $25,000-$35,000 in 2019.

2019 City Nature Challenge

The New York City Nature Challenge, hosted by Macaulay Honors College and sponsored by ConEd, is part of a global campaign to bring together nature lovers of all ages in the greenspaces of their communities to record examples of urban wildlife with smartphones.

Throughout April 26-29, public parks, preservation societies, gardens and other natural organizations around New York City’s five boroughs will host City Nature Challenge events that are open to all. Participants will be guided by Macaulay student volunteers to catalog their images using the iNaturalist smartphone app.

After observation days have ended, the iNaturalist community will help properly identify and catalog the species in a marathon tech session. and results will be publicly available.

Citizen science demonstrates that science is for everyone and can be done by anyone. Participating in scientific efforts helps to improve science literacy for all. City Nature Challenge contributes to our understanding of urban wildlife in New York City and the planet as a whole.

Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Native American Scholars Initiative (NASI) Summer Undergraduate Internship

These paid 8-week internships provide three talented undergraduates with the opportunity to conduct research, to explore career possibilities in archives and special collections, and to learn about advanced training in Native American and Indigenous Studies and related fields. The internship will take place from mid-June to mid-August 2019. During this time students will work at the APS Library and will also have the opportunity to travel to Native communities to share their work. The stipend is between $3000 and $3500 (depending on housing costs), plus a travel allowance.

Math and STEM undergraduate summer research projects (MSEIP)

Dear Colleagues,
As a part of the collaborative MSEIP grant with BMCC (funded by the Department of Education) we have funds in the City Tech budget to support undergraduate student research projects to be conducted over the summer. 
We have $42000 in the City Tech budget to recruit 28 students for summer research projects, along with their faculty mentors. 
Each faculty mentor is expected to develop appropriate undergraduate research projects and can advise up to 2 students. The faculty can recruit the students directly but if they need help recruiting students, they can contact me. 
Each student researcher will receive $1000 stipend upon successful completion of the summer research project, which will involve giving a short presentation at a local conference (either at City Tech or BMCC). Each participating faculty mentor will receive $500 in summer salary for each student they supervise. 
Faculty and student applications are due by April 24. Please let your students know about this summer research opportunity, and if you are interested in advising students, please let me know and we’ll go from there. 
Below you will find additional guidelines regarding international students. Please note that interested students must meet the guidelines in either A or B described below.
 
A.  US citizens or Green Card holders (permanent residents) are eligible to receive a student stipend.  
B.  For non-US Citizens, additional information about eligibility can be found at the US Department of Education website:
