Faculty Research Grants

CSB has recently launched its Research Grant Program for Stern Faculty and PhD students. Read details below.


NYU Stern’s Center for Sustainable Business’s (CSB) envisions a better world through better business. CSB offers faculty research grants related to our mission: to ensure current and future business leaders develop the knowledge and skills to embed sustainability in core business strategy so they can reduce risk; create competitive advantage; develop innovative services, products, and processes; while building value for society and protecting the planet. The CSB defines the 21st century corporation as one that embeds sustainability core to its business strategy, creates value for key stakeholders and society, and helps to solve the challenges we have before us. Our thematic research areas include: tracking the financial case for sustainability, shifting from short-term, shareholder value creation to long-term, stakeholder value, engaging consumers around sustainability, and sustainability-driven innovation and business opportunities. 

Grants are strictly for research and can complement CSB research or expand beyond our Center-driven projects, while still adhering to our core mission. Grants that complement CSB thematic areas of focus of CSB will receive preference.  Examples of activities CSB might fund include data purchase or research assistance. Any full-time Stern faculty member or Ph.D. student may apply. Collaborations with Ph.D. students are encouraged.
