For funding sources, view a list of externally funded awards and NYU grant opportunities for faculty and for students. Contact the MCC grants manager if you are not sure where to begin, as there are several University guidelines that must be followed.
Steinhardt's Office of Research provides helpful guidance for both graduate students and faculty. Note the instructions for UCAIHS Clearance Process for Students, should your project require IRB approval.
Both students and faculty should contact the Office of Research once they have decided to apply for external funding.
