At the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs, we know that applying for grants and fellowships can be one of the most challenging aspects of academia. Learning how to write great applications for research funding and how to search grant funding databases are two of the most invaluable skills that you can acquire during your academic career. Earning an impressive grant award not only provides the short-term benefit of helping you to realize your research goals, but it serves as an important credential and will open doors for your professional development well into your career.
You can learn more about great research grant opportunities and academic fellowships by looking through the lists that we have compiled on our website. For access to the greatest number of research funding opportunities, however, you should learn more about how to use the FoundationSearch and PIVOT databases, which we have licensed for use.
Training on PIVOT is available on a one-on-one basis. Contact Christi Townley to schedule.
