Bridge Funding Program

The Office of the Provost is pleased to announce a CCNY program to provide short-term "bridge" funds to CCNY researchers who have encountered a break in established external research funding.  The primary purpose of the bridge funding program is to support research personnel while a faculty member awaits notice of an award from one or more grant proposals that have been submitted.  The program is not intended to provide bridge funding for a single specific project, but rather for the entire research program of a faculty member.  Grants will be awarded only to faculty members who have very little funds remaining in all existing RF accounts.

Eligibility Requirements

  1. Full time tenured or tenure track faculty
  2. Have received at least $100k/yr in externally funded research grants administered by the RF for each of the previous 3 years
  3. Have supported graduate students (min $20k/yr) or post docs (min $40k/yr) for each of the previous 3 years
  4. Have one or more external research grants with indirect cost requested pending


There will be two deadlines for applications per year.
