Goddard Junior Faculty Fellowships
The Goddard Junior Faculty Fellowship program provides funds to tenure track faculty who have successfully passed their Third-Year Review to advance their research and scholarship interests. These funds may be used for adjunct replacement during the faculty member’s leave with pay, or to provide support for travel, publications, and other research costs. The award process is school based, selected schools only, with additional information available from the school Dean’s Office.

The Global Public Health Research Challenge Fund
The Global Public Health Research Challenge Fund (GPHRCF), administered by the Executive Vice President for Health, supports faculty-initiated research on a competitive basis. The Fund encourages faculty to explore new areas of global public health research that are likely to attract outside support, and supports global public health research in areas where there are few sources of existing support.

The Humanities Initiative
The Humanities Initiative offers a number of grants and fellowships to full-time faculty in the humanities and art disciplines.
This program provides a limited number of grants in support of projects with a humanistic focus. Specifically intended to augment the funds of schools and departments, Grants-in-Aid provide financial assistance for special class activities, publication costs, and special events such as conferences, symposia, and seminars.
Faculty Research Fellowships
The Research Fellowships support projects that clearly define a research problem that can be investigated in a one-year project period and demonstrate the likelihood of a significant contribution to the field. Fellows are expected to be present in New York within the University community for the entire year of their residency.
Working Research Group Grants
These grants build community and foster interdisciplinary exchange by bringing together NYU faculty and graduate students in a series of meetings on a focused topic in the humanities where interdisciplinary approaches are likely to be particularly fruitful. The WRGs are expected to generate new curricular offerings, publications, conferences, or collaborative faculty projects.
These stipends foster creative and dynamic teaching across humanistic disciplines and departments, in the interest of generating innovative new courses and teaching formats.

The competition is open to all current NYU students, faculty and research staff and kicks-off in September and runs through May of each academic year. During this 8-month program, participants benefit from team-building initiatives, entrepreneurial workshops, bootcamps, mentoring and coaching as they develop their technologies into viable business ventures.

NYU Innovation Venture Fund
The NYU Innovation Venture Fund is a seed-stage venture capital fund created to invest in startups founded by NYU students, faculty and researchers, and/or those commercializing NYU-developed technologies and intellectual property. The Fund seeks inventions, discoveries, products or services that were developed in whole or in part at NYU and are ready for commercial product development, rather than those requiring further basic research. Though a complete business plan and team is not required for consideration, the technology underpinning the venture concept should have achieved the proof-of- concept or prototype stage and solve a measurable problem in a large and growing market. The founders should be the nucleus around which a strong, entrepreneurial team can form and execute a financially attractive business plan.
