Finding Funding

Sponsored Awards subscribes to many grant alerts, has assembled an extensive list of grant-related web sites that provide excellent searching and researching capabilities, and works with faculty and staff to assemble application packets and upload them to USCeRA. See the “Pre Award” section for more information.

Sponsored Awards sends out e-mail notification to selected recipients as grant opportunities are announced, so please notify us if you have particular areas of interest.

The Sponsored Awards Management (SAM) office in Columbia also sends a weekly grants announcement list to faculty and staff. Send an e-mail to Gayle Haddock to be added to the list.

Faculty and staff can run their own grant opportunity searches—based on key word, funding agency, etc.—by using the links below:
