What is CRSP?  

The CUNY Research Scholars Program (CRSP) aims to increase the participation of CUNY community college students in faculty-mentored research in Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, Social Sciences, Business, and more. CRSP is a rigorous program where full-time Kingsborough students will receive stipends totaling up to $5,000, contingent on funding, and course credits on their transcripts through enrollment in research courses CRSP over the course of one academic year.
