CUNY Pipeline Program to Enhance the Professoriate

The CUNY Pipeline Program is designed to provide educational and financial support to underrepresented CUNY undergraduates interested in pursuing the Ph.D. in preparation for college-level teaching and advanced research in any discipline except law and medicine. The CUNY Pipeline Program seeks to recruit students from groups currently underrepresented in our nation’s universities.

The CUNY Pipeline Program provides orientation to the academic profession through a six week summer research institute at The Graduate Center and research projects conducted with doctoral faculty. In the summer institute fellows: take a 4-credit research seminar that orients them to academia, participate in workshops on applying to graduate school, and attend workshops in preparation for the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). Fellows report on their research project at the annual CUNY Pipeline Conference held at The Graduate Center and submit a written senior thesis at the end of the academic year.

Financial Support
CUNY Pipeline Fellows receive $1,500 as a summer stipend, $750 to cover graduate school application fees; $750 for participation in the annual conference; reimbursement of the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) fee and another $850 for completion of the senior thesis. A transitional allowance of $1,000 is awarded to students who accept admission into a PhD program.
