SUNY – System Administration
SUNY Center Scale Proposal Planning and Development Grant Program. See detailed guidelines.
Nationally funded research centers provide considerable resources in support of broad, interdisciplinary research; promoting enduring partnerships; positively impacting science, technology and the economy; and bringing significant prestige to the institutions. To further expand SUNY’s research enterprise, SUNY System Administration, through The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Economic Development (“VCRED Office”), seeks to build and grow more interdisciplinary, multi-institutional, center-scale research programs at its campuses.
This RFP is designed to facilitate the preparation and development of large, complex grant applications that require extensive planning, networking and significant investments of the faculty’s time and effort. Examples of large, interdisciplinary center programs include: DOE’s Energy Frontiers Research Centers; NSF’s Engineering Research Centers and Science and Technology Centers; Materials Research Science and Engineering Centers; NIH’s P50 Project Grants; DoD’s University Affiliated Research Centers, Multidisciplinary University Research Initiatives; CDC’s Occupational Safety and Health Education and Research Centers; multi-institutional grants, institutional training grants, and infrastructure-building grants; as well as, centers funded by non-profit foundations and industry sponsors.
Each campus may submit no more than three individual proposals and no more than one joint proposal with other SUNY campuses in a given funding cycle.
A total of $1M is available for awards under this RFP: up to $500,000 for the first round and up to $500,000 for the second round.
Generally, the total budget per proposal should not exceed $50,000. The award size, however, will be commensurate with the activities needed for the team to advance from its current stage to proposal submission, and with grants of comparable size in similar areas.
Due to the limited number of applications, if you or your colleagues are interested in applying, please submit an internal letter of intent in a single pdf format to Dr. Kenneth Tramposch by Jan. 8, 2018.
The letter of intent should include:
If your proposal is selected, the first-round application deadline is Feb. 16, 2018 by 5:00pm EST.
