Decorative graphic reading "CINSAM Research Grants"

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.


RFP Schedule

Due to unforseen circumstances, CINSAM Research Grants are cancelled for 2022-2023.

We hope to resume this opportunity in 2023-2024, in which case, the instructions and submission deadlines for proposals will be announced in October 2023.

If you'd like to start preparing for the next CINSAM Research Grant opportunity, you may use the most recent templates below to start your draft, though the documents are subject to change.

Research Grant Review Panelists

Each year, CINSAM seeks new panelists to serve on the CINSAM Research Grants Review Panel. You are eligible if you are:

  • a faculty member from a CINSAM-supported department (former CINSAM Grants recipients a plus);
  • not applying for a CINSAM Research Grant at the same time as serving on the panel.

Interested in being a panelist? Check back in October 2023 to fill out an interest form.
