Funding Resources

Federal, foundation, specialty funding sources, student funding sources, and searchable databases. The most efficient way to find funding opportunities is to use these resources to set up funding alerts that automatically notify you of funding opportunities in your area of interest.

Information about proposals for which the sponsor accepts only a limited number of submissions. See UGA’s internal process for selecting limited submission proposals. A list of current limited submission opportunities can be found in Research Announcements.

The University of Georgia Research Foundation (UGARF) funds competitive internal grants to support initial work by early career faculty and research in new areas of endeavor. It also supports travel to foreign conferences and symposia.

Use these databases to find out what current research is being done in the field before it is published; identify what has been successfully funded; and identify researchers who may be potential coworkers, collaborators or mentors.
