Find Research Funding

Find Research Funding

A number of campus, Federal, State, private, and corporate sources provide funding to support the research enterprise at Illinois. The OVCR can assist faculty and other researchers in identifying and strategizing opportunities that will further their research goals.

External Funding Opportunities

The first step to external funding success is learning about funding opportunities. There are a number of ways to do this:

Campus Funding Opportunities 

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign supports innovative research in a number of ways. Campus funding helps faculty and research staff advance new ideas, complete important preliminary studies to attract external support, and supplement resources available from other sources. View a list of campus seed funding opportunities.

Limited Submissions

The U of I has a limited submission selection process because government agencies, private foundations, and corporate sponsors often accept only a limited number of proposals, applications, or nominations from a single institution (thus the term "Limited Submissions"). See a detailed explanation of the Limited Submissions Process or subscribe to the OVCR Research Funding and Opportunities Email List.
