The Office of Sponsored Programs can assist in identifying a wide range of funding opportunities for faculty and staff to apply to within the federal government, foundations, non-profit organizations, and corporations. We consult with faculty/staff and provide ideas and strategies for the funding search process.
In order to provide personalized funding search support, faculty/staff are asked to click and complete the following Grant Project Idea Form. Once completed, this form will enable OSP to identify specific search strategies for finding a funding match for your project/ idea and to provide updates on current relevant funding opportunities and specific funding sources that might be useful in your funding search process.
If you want to apply for federal government grants, Grants.gov has to be your first stop. This U.S. government website has lots of useful information for nonprofits, including announcements of federal grants.
