Find Funding

  • External Funding Resources: Links to 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.
  • UGA Internal Funding: 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.
  • Funded Research Databases: 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.
  • Industry Funding: NineSights is a secure, collaborative online community managed by NineSigma that connects “solution seekers” with “solution providers.
  • Limited Submissions: Information about UGA's internal process for selecting limited submission proposals can be found here. A list of current limited submission opportunities can be found in Research Announcements.
  • Crowdfunding: Information on using crowdfunding, in which a large number of individuals contribute varying dollar amounts to help raise a specific funding goal, to fund small research projects.
