Our dedication to applied research that solves real-world problems is apparent when looking at our largest federal sponsors over the last three fiscal years: the Department of Health and Human Services, the National Science Foundation, the Department of Energy, and the Department of Defense.
The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs provides access to searchable databases to help our researchers find funding. We also encourage you to sign up for the weekly funding notice newsletter for more information on the most recent funding opportunities available.
