External Funding

The Office of Research & Creative Scholarship is proactive in supporting faculty in identifying funding sources and preparing effective proposals for external support. 

The Office of Research & Creative Scholarship team will facilitate in every way possible the development of winning proposals to these external agencies. We have listed a few links to external granting sites and encourage individuals to research other sources of funding from Foundations and other external agencies. Items that are starred (*) are highly recommended by our office. 

Our office also sponsors attendance at regional grant writing workshops. Please contact the Research office if you would like assistance finding appropriate grant training.
