Research Funding Opportunities

UNT faculty, research staff, and students produce innovative, creative, and transformative research that pushes their respective fields. Agencies from federal to commercial to foundations support our UNT researchers. Here, we provide faculty with tools to search for opportunities to support research.

External Funding Opportunities

External research funding is available from a variety of sources, including government agencies, non-profit organizations, and corporations. Typically, external funding can best be broken down into a few sponsor types.

Intramural Seed Funding

Research seed grants are intended as a mechanism to collect preliminary data, conduct pilot studies and/or complete scholarly activities that will facilitate external funding applications by making the applications more competitive during external review.

Limited Submissions Program

A limited submission proposal is a type of broad agency announcement, request for proposal, or other funding opportunity, in which the sponsor restricts the number of applications or proposals that can be submitted by an institution or a unit within an institution.
