What Can I Do with SIROCS?

SIROCS Qualified Programs have been nominated by CUNY staff and faculty as consistent with the SIROCS program criteria.  We encourage you to consider these programs, and if they are consistent with your professional goals, to apply for SIROCS funding to support your experience.  Please keep in mind that a program nominated as “SIROCS-Qualified” will not be a good fit for your application if it does not complement your professional goals.  This list includes winter and spring nominated programs.  Summer and fall programs are not eligible for this funding cycle.

This list is growing as additional CUNY programs are nominated.  Please check back, and in the meantime, consider the full spectrum of CUNY programs, some of which may be a good fit for your professional goals and the SIROCS requirements, although they may not have been nominated yet. Since only CUNY-wide programs are considered for pre-qualification, you should also ask your Study Abroad Office about programs offered exclusively to students at your CUNY college that may be a good fit for SIROCS funding.  Applicants may also apply for SIROCS funding for non-CUNY programs and for independently organized experiences (e.g. internships, volunteer experience) that fulfill the SIROCS program criteria.

CUNY faculty who wish to have a program nominated as SIROCS Qualified should contact the Study Abroad Director at their College.  To be considered, your program must be open to students throughout CUNY, be at least two weeks long, and include an experiential component designed to support participants’ preparation for relevant professional fields.

If your program meets all these criteria except CUNY-wide admissions, you can still request that your program be reviewed for consideration as SIROCS Qualified.  Accepted nominations will not be posted on the website, but you may advertise them on your campus as SIROCS Qualified.  Nominations of programs only open to students at your College should also be submitted by the Study Abroad Director (or equivalent) at your College.

SIROCS is the successor program to STOCS; current eligibility rules and application procedures apply.
