Funding Resources for Researchers

Resources and services across campus support investigators seeking funding for research activities.

Based in the Office of Research Affairs, the Research Development team (RD, previously known as RPDS) supports investigators throughout campus in developing large, interdisciplinary, and/or strategic proposals. RD also assists investigators with identifying and prioritizing funding opportunities, and by facilitating strategic partnerships with organizations on and off campus that can make proposals more competitive. RD provides curated resources to support a variety of common funding pursuits, such as recurring early-career programs.
