Researchers seeking funding for a research project should start with the Office of Sponsored Research Administration (OSRA). The Office can help faculty find internal research grants and other funding through online subscription services and search engines. The website provides links to numerous funding organizations and resources, and OSRA staff can help researchers make initial contacts and determine their eligibility to apply for research grants and other funding.
Projects may also find funding through websites such as ED.gov, the FAA, Fed Biz Opps, grants.gov, InfoEd (Smarts and SPIN), NASA, and the NSF. Researchers can also try professional associations such as the National Council of University Research Administrators and the National Organization of Research Development Professionals. OSRA staff can also help connect researchers with private industry funding sources.
In addition, the Office of Sponsored Research Administration compiles a list of funding opportunities for Embry-Riddle faculty. Faculty members who would like to receive this publication should email Brianna Gray.
