CINSAM seeks proposals for CINSAM Research Grants on an annual basis. CINSAM Research Grants provide support for STEM faculty research with students. The goals of the program are to:

  • help faculty establish new research programs,
  • promote faculty advancement (especially early-career faculty), and
  • offer students high-quality research experiences.


2023-2024 Instructions & Deadlines

1. Complete and submit the Request for Proposal (RFP) and Budget Proposal documents to your department Chair by November 10th.

2. Once approved by your department Chair, submit the completed RFP and Budget Proposal document by November 30th.

After the submission deadline, proposals are reviewed by the CINSAM Research Grant Review Panel in mid-December to determine funding allowances for each proposal. In early January, Project Directors will be notified via written letter if/how their proposed projects will be funded.
