(9) GIP Research Funds
The Dean of Research and Graduate Studies announces the availability of research funds for master's
students. The funds will allow masters-level graduate students to purchase items and supplies beneficial
to their academic progress in their degree program. This program has been made possible by the City
University of New York in an effort to improve services to graduate students through the Graduate
Investment Program (GIP). The college has the opportunity to help graduate students to enrich their
graduate experience by encouraging them to participate in research related to their academic studies.

Qualifying applicants must be matriculated graduate students with a G.P.A. of 3.0 or above.
Applicants must have completed a minimum of six (6) Brooklyn College graduate credits in the program in
which they are currently registered.

Graduate Investment Program funds can not be applied towards items previously purchased. Please
review the materials you are requesting so that they are what you really need for your project. If your
application is approved, only the items from your initial request may be purchased.

Certain equipment such as cameras, other forms of technological equipment, software licenses and some
other permanent items will be awarded directly to departments, not to individual students so the
equipment can benefit future cohorts of students. If you have a need for such items, discuss this with your
graduate deputy or program head, who can make a request for the program. If you're not sure which
category your request falls into, please contact Ms. De Palma in the Office of the Graduate Dean (see
below).

Students may receive the GIP Research Award no more than twice.
