Multidisciplinary RFPs

Dear Pace Community, 

The Office of Sponsored Research would like to encourage the submission of large multidisciplinary and/or multi-institutional proposals. We are prepared to assist in the organization and submission providing that a clear interest is shown by. 

Here are three major multi-disciplinary RFP’s which may be of interest to some of you. Each one has the potential to bring a grant of $1,000,000 or more to Pace University. Collaboration between schools at Pace University is highly encouraged as well as collaboration with other institutions of higher education. In the event that the current published deadline prevents a proposal from being submitted in this academic year, such as in the case of the Alliances for Broadening Participation in STEM (ABP) program, please keep in mind that most of these RFP’s repeat annually. 

Please let our Office know of any interest in these or other potential proposals, and we will continue to alert you to such possibilities.

SUMMARY OF PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS

General Information

Program Title:

Alliances for Broadening Participation in STEM (ABP)
Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP), Bridge to the Doctorate (BD), Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (AGEP)

Synopsis of Program:

The two programs and one supplemental activity included under the Alliances for Broadening Participation in Science and Engineering (ABP) solicitation seek to increase the number of students successfully completing quality degree programs in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Particular emphasis is placed on supporting groups that historically have been underrepresented in STEM: African Americans, Alaskan Natives, American Indians, Hispanic Americans and Native Pacific Islanders. ABP support begins at the baccalaureate level with the Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP) program. For eligible students, significant financial support is continued for two years of graduate study via the Bridge to the Doctorate (BD) activity. Rounding out the ABP cluster are Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (AGEP), which further the graduate education of minority students through the doctorate level, preparing them for fulfilling opportunities and productive careers as STEM faculty and research professionals.
