Initiatives & Grants

  • Ticket Request Initiative

    The CRS Ticket Request Initiative enables faculty to apply for funds to attend curriculum-related performances, museums or lectures within the NYC area. The program is designed to encourage faculty to take small groups of students to shows or exhibits (or anything else that might involve a ticket purchase). The aim is to fund trips to events that will enhance and relate to topics students are studying, so the events are required to be related to course curriculum.

  • Faculty-sponsored Event Support

    CRS will help support faculty-sponsored public events (guest speakers, roundtable discussions, symposia) linked to its three departments pedagogic and research activities.

  • Faculty Book Publication Grant

    CRS will offer support to each CRS department to support full-time faculty book publishing. One grant will be available per department/year.

  • Student Travel Grant

    The CRS Student Travel Grant is designed to support eligible PhD candidates, graduate, and undergraduate senior students in good academic standing in the three CRS departments to present their work at conferences and professional symposia that pertain and enrich their area of study.
