Steinhardt's Office of Research has provided a helpful proposal guide as well as links to other instructional articles. Here you will also find instructions for the 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.
NYU's Office of Sponsored Programs posts overhead and fringe rates, EIN/TIN, and other university information that might be required for your application.
The SSRC's Art of Writing Proposals should be required reading for all new applicants, particularly those who are applying for SSRC and other Social Sciences-related funding.
Contact our operations and business administrator if you are not sure where to begin or you need someone (in addition to your colleagues, advisors and/or the Office of Research) to go over your application.
