Where to Start:
- START WITH OBTAINING APPROVAL FROM QCC to PROCEED
You need approval from Queensborough Community College PRIOR to applying for any grant, either as the project director/principal investigator OR as a participant in any grant with another institution as Co-PI or subawardee. Check with the QCC Office of Grants/Sponsored Programs as soon as you know you will be submitting, or participating in, a grant application.
- COMPLETE THE QCC GRANT PROPOSAL INFORMATION (GPI) FORM
Find it here: http://www.qcc.cuny.edu/sponsoredPrograms/Forms.html
You must complete the QCC Grant Proposal Information Form and submit it to the QCC Office of Grants/Sponsored Programs at minimum four weeks prior to the grant proposal submission deadline. However, this should be done as soon as you know you will be participating in a grant submission.
- DEVELOP A DRAFT BUDGET AND ABSTRACT
When you submit your GPI form you must also submit a preliminary or draft budget. The QCC Office of Grants/Sponsored Programs can assist with developing your budget. A short abstract describing your project will also be required with the GPI.
- COMPLETE ADDITIONAL FORMS AS REQUIRED FOR APPROVAL
Some grants require release time from teaching, summer salary, purchase of computers or software, use of campus space, human subject’s research, biohazards, and animal research. You may need to complete additional forms and submit these with your GPI. Check with the QCC Office of Grants/Sponsored Programs to find out what forms you will need to complete.
- OBTAIN YOUR DEPARTMENT CHAIR’S APPROVAL AND SIGNATURE
Your department chair must sign your GPI form before you submit it to the QCC Office of Grants/Sponsored Programs. Discuss your grant proposal with your chair in advance and obtain his/her signature on the GPI form before you submit it.
