The Office of Sponsored Programs & Research Integrity (OSPRI) assists faculty, staff, and students in finding funding opportunities for programming, research projects, and other activities. If you have found a funding opportunity, before starting the application process, please contact Sponsored Programs so our office can confirm eligibility.
OSPRI utilizes a software called SPIN Plus. Through this service, faculty, staff, and students can customize funding searches by keywords, specific to research and external funding interests. Participants can select to receive funding notices, by email, daily or weekly. Keywords can be edited upon request.
Additionally, funding opportunities can be found at Grants.gov for federal support and through various searching through foundation and state website.
USDA provides funding for a variety of projects, which are not solely agriculture based. They also support rural development of small business, education, healthy and safety, and other activities.
The grant forecast page is an excellent tool to plan for future funding opportunities.
All DOJ areas which issue grants may be found here. Listed offices with specifics links are provided.
