Committee on Special Awards

Many foundations limit the amount of grant applications that can be submitted from any single institution. In these cases, applications are reviewed by the Committee on Special Awards (CoSA). The primary reviewers present the proposal to the committee for discussion. Each member votes afterward by secret ballot and ranks the proposal. Based on their ranking, the committee recommends the applications to the Dean for approval. To see a listing of special grant, scholarship and fellowship opportunities, please visit the Upcoming Awards section of the CoSA website.


A contract is a mechanism for procurement of a product or service with specific obligations for both Mount Sinai and the extramural funding agency and recipient. Typically, there are greater performance expectations associated with contracts, including project milestones and detailed deliverables (e.g., reports). The arrangement is usually designed to benefit the extramural funding agency by achieving an expected outcome or product. We have compiled links to the following contract resources:

Commerce Business Daily (CBD) lists notices of proposed government procurement actions, contract awards, sales of government property and other procurement information. Each notice only appears in the CBD once.

FedBizOpps (FBO) lists over 23,000 immediate Federal procurement request for proposals (RFPs).


Crowdfunding is a mechanism to fund a project by collecting small donations from many people. Crowdfunding is emerging as an important way for hospitals, biomedical research institutes and medical schools to fund new ideas to expand continued initiatives to cure diseases and improve patient care. The idea is to pitch your project (online), tell them your idea in a video, and detail how much it will cost to get the data you need to execute your idea.
