External Funding Opportunities
There are many external funding source options, ranging from grants at the federal level to private foundation grants. We list links to the most common funding sources here, but recommend that faculty make an appointment with staff in the Office of Research Development for a range of opportunities tailored to your specific research area. The UMass Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations provides assistance with foundation funding options. Graduate students should contact the GrantSearch for Graduate Students (GSGS) for help with identifying and applying for fellowships and grants as well as funding for overseas studies, dissertation writing, and professional training.
ISSR recommends signing up for funding alerts based on your area of research.
