Internal Funding Opportunities

External Funding Opportunities

All faculty are encouraged to utilize USU's Funding Finder database. The Funding Finder database contains research and creative activity funding opportunities from Federal sources and private entities. The database also contains nomination opportunities for faculty to be recognized for their work, limited competition programs, and internal seed grant opportunities.

The Funding Finder newsletter is sent via email to subscribers each week and lists a sample of the funding opportunities posted within the past 7 days. You can subscribe to the Funding Finder newsletter by following the information on the main page of the database.
