Funding and Grants

We can help you — whether you’re a student, faculty or staff member, researcher, or from a nonprofit community organization — with strategies for finding funding at every stage of your research project.

We can point you to databases of funding organizations and help you sign up to receive funding alerts.

This might include internal funding programs and awards available on campus; funding from an external foundation or public charity; state or federal government agency; commercial, business, or industry sponsor; or through crowdfunding.

Apply for a library award or grant. You may qualify for a library-funded award or grant to further your research.
