Pursuing Funding

Tips for Pursuing Funding

When searching for funding, researchers should be mindful of and realistic about the goals and scope of their projects. The grants you pursue should align with the vision of your project, just as your project should meet the needs of the funding agencies. We recommend making yourself aware of agency requirements such as eligibility, matching, and reporting before you apply for funding. Once you find a prospective agency, you should consult with it for advice on proposal submissions.

Search Resources

UALR faculty and staff have access to the American Association of State Colleges and Universities’ Grant Resource Center (GRC). One of the hallmarks of the GRC is its funding database, GrantSearch, which was developed to make finding federal and private foundation grant information accessible and convenient. Get login info for GrantSearch.
