External Opportunities

Grants and contracts can be awarded by a variety of funding sources; typically funding competitions originate through government agencies, foundations, and some corporate entities. Government grants sometimes operate on short notice. But, in many cases, they are repetitive, so if we miss a deadline, we can start preparing for the next cycle’s application date.

Information about internal funding opportunities is available here.
