Searching for Funding Opportunities

Funding Agencies

The Funding Agencies page is a collection of databases and other extramural resources used to help WSSU faculty and staff identify and apply for external funding opportunities. These databases provide alerts to specific funding opportunities, guidelines for preparing proposals, access to potential collaborators and mentors, as well as opportunities to implement research projects through business and industry partnerships. To learn more about these resources and opportunities visit the Funding Agencies page.

Limited Submissions Funding Opportunities

Limited submissions are funding opportunities where sponsor agencies restrict the number of research proposals and other funding awards that a single institution can submit for a particular funding announcement. To be considered for a limited submissions funding opportunity, interested principal investigators (PI) and/or program directors (PD) must participate in the limited submissions proposal development process. To identify a limited submissions funding opportunity that may fit your research interests, review the limited submissions funding opportunities listing.
