The CUNY Pipeline Program

The CUNY Pipeline Program provides educational and financial support to minority undergraduates interested in pursuing the Ph.D. in preparation for college-level teaching and advanced research.

Along with a stipend of $3,250, the CUNY Pipeline Program provides a summer research institute at The Graduate Center which includes a 4-credit research seminar, workshops on applying to graduate school, and workshops in preparation for taking the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). Fellows report on their research projects at the annual CUNY Pipeline Conference and submit a written thesis at the end of the year. Pipeline fellows who enter a CUNY doctoral program receive a tuition waiver for their first year of doctoral study, which brings the total financial package to $7,600.

Eligibility requirements: (1) Ethnic minority students (African American, Asian American, Latino/a, or Native American); (2) U.S. citizens or permanent residents; (3) Juniors enrolled in one of CUNY’s senior colleges who have earned at least 80 credits by the spring of the junior year; (5) Minimum GPA of 3.2; (6) An interest in college teaching and research.

The application deadline is March 1. (Postmarked)
