The Office of Research, Grants and Contracts conducts funding "Search Parties" every Tuesday at 9:00 am.  Here, our Manager of Research Development and Grant Administrators dedicate an hour to searching for opportunities specific to your research and/or project interests.

Before we search for funding, the Manager of Research Development (Julie Moses: provides one-on-one funding opportunity meetings to discuss your research interests.  The purpose of these meetings is to produce a thorough list of keywords and phrases related to your research or project.  Searches will be most successful if you provide both general and specific keywords. We have a variety of online resources available for searching for funding, and after you meet with the MRD, your keywords and phrases will be entered into the "Search Party" queue. 

In addition, you can conduct funding opportunities on your own via the following websites:
