We explore the possibility of using transverse single spin asymmetries arising in prompt photon production, through scattering of unpolarized beams of protons/leptons off transversely polarized proton target, as probes of Gluon Sivers Function. We present estimates of asymmetries at both RHIC and EIC energies within the generalized parton model (GPM) and color gauge invariant generalized parton model (CGI-GPM).
