Lehman College Opportunities
Lehman Bridge Grants
Lehman College Bridge grants are designed to meet the short-term and absolutely essential needs of researchers who have an established record of external funding. The College will make up to three bridge grants a year. The maximum amount of an individual bridge grant is $15,000. (The award amount may not exceed one third of the indirect cost generated by the applicant during the previous three years.) Only faculty with a strong record of external funding and a proposal approved for funding or a proposal submitted that has a reasonable chance of getting funded are eligible. No individual or research group may receive more than two such grants within five consecutive academic years. (There must be at 12 months between the termination of the first Bridge Grant and the start of the second.) Bridge grants will be awarded based upon a formal application to the Research and Scholarship Committee. Bridge grants awarded in a single year will not total more than 20 percent of the entire sum awarded for research support in that year.
Deadline: TBA (usually announced in May)

George N. Shuster Fellowship
The George N. Shuster Fellowship Fund makes available modest grants to support scholarly work in progress, particularly work nearing completion by full-time members of the Faculty. These grants may not be used for research connected with the completion of advanced degrees. The work should be scholarly, not commercial, and evidence of progress should be available. Although all faculty are invited to apply, preference will be given to non-tenured, tenure-track faculty and to faculty members without any other sources of support.
Deadline: March 30, 2012
