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.
"We believe that all researchers should have the opportunity to access resources to support their work — we are here to help them with this."
— Mark McLellan, VPRI
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
Intended for scholarly and creative activities for which it is rare to find external sponsors. Research seed grants are intended as a mechanism to jumpstart research activity to collect preliminary data or conduct pilot studies to help with larger external funding after.
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.
