The grants office’s website supports faculty in seeking grants and fellowships. The Q & A that follows provides a brief overview of the most helpful features of the website. You can also reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A: There are two pages that can help you explore funding opportunities. The first is the Upcoming Deadlines page. This page features various opportunities (related to grants and fellowships), divided into two tables: Humanities and Sciences (Natural, Cognitive, and Behavioral). The tables are organized by the funding agency, opportunity name, and respective deadline.
If none of these opportunities pertain to your project or idea, you can find Funding Opportunities/Sources. Here, we provide links to various public and private funding sources, as well as links to databases (e.g., COS Pivot, Grants.Gov, and Duke University) that can help you search for funding opportunities that fit your project.
A: First, we suggest you explore the Guidelines for Faculty Grant and Fellowship Proposal Submissions page, which walks you through the proposal development steps. Next, we would encourage you to contact us! Email Margie Hutter (email@example.com) or Alyssa Ryan (firstname.lastname@example.org) in the grants office to share what you would like to do. Other pages that may help you with developing a proposal include:
A: First, congratulations! This is wonderful news, so please be sure to tell the grants office! Next, we would encourage you to look at the Manage Your Grant page to understand the post-award administration steps.
A: You can see a list of the current year's grant-funded projects on the Grants at Work page (as well as annual archives).
Finally, we would like to share a very important statistic: "You will get 0% of the grants you do not apply for." We encourage you to apply for a grant, and if it isn't funded, to continue to apply. We will always serve as a source of support, as will your colleagues who have also gone through this multifaceted, but rewarding, process.
