May Featured Funding Opportunities

Tips for Finding Funding
  • The website funding.research.umich.edu, curated by the U-M Library, provides a more comprehensive listing of funding resources.
  • Searching resources like Grants.gov or ProQuest's Pivot (a service which U-M provides for use by staff and faculty) will yield more external opportunities. Both resources offer options for automated email updates based on your preferences and research area(s).
  • We sometimes learn of opportunities belatedly. We will do our best to announce it within a reasonable time. We include these references to allow for your planning purposes.
