Find Funding

There are many ways to find funding opportunities to support your projects. We recommend the following resources. The Office of Research also publishes monthly selected solicitations and grant calendars under our Announcements section. If you need more information, have questions or are ready to submit a proposal, please contact us.

Find out if the funding opportunity you seek is Limited (i.e., sponsor limits the number allowed per institution) and what is required by that sponsor and by U-M. Researchers therefore will only compete with others from their own campus during internal competitions.
