Finding Funding: Services and Tools

We help match faculty and their projects to suitable funding opportunities. Our services include:

  • Consultations on funding strategy.
  • Dissemination of proposal solicitations and announcements.
  • Sharing of background research and intelligence about potential funders.
  • Assistance with Pivot, an online database of funding opportunities.
  • Referrals to other campus offices, such as Foundation Relations and Corporate Philanthropy.
  • Staffing of VCRO's limited submissions process.

We are constantly exploring new ways to disseminate funding opportunities and related information to campus faculty.
