Funding Opportunities

This page will serve as a resource for researchers as they seek to identify potential funding opportunities.  Regular updates of newly announced competitions will be posted to this page.  Researchers are also encouraged to contact the OGSP for individual or group consultations.   The primary focus of this office is institutional competitions, but we are happy to assist faculty, as time permits, with fellowship and other individual competitions.

See the Limited Submissions Process for opportunities that have an institutional limit on the number of proposals that may be submitted or that require institutional nomination.

  1. Open RFPs

    Announcements of funding opportunities will be posted regularly, but we encourage you to set alerts for your specific research needs.  No list can be comprehensive across all disciplines and areas of research.  Generally listings will not be repeated so check several postings to have a more complete idea of what is available.
