Illinois State University now subscribes to a service called Pivot-RP. Pivot-RP provides researchers with a searchable database of funding opportunities, funding sources, and conferences. It also provides an expertise database to help researchers identify potential collaborators both within ISU and at other institutions around the world.
There are a number of grant tools available to Illinois State University researchers finding funding. Find internal and external support and take your project to the next level. A concept paper can help in identifying funders.
Grants and Funding
Federal funding agencies generally provide the most stable source of external funding for researchers at the University. Use Grants.gov and Fed Biz Opps as the two resources for federal grants.
The Illinois Catalog of State Financial Assistance provides State financial assistance program information. This site provides a list of agencies that have active grant programs, currently funded grant programs, and a list of current funding opportunities.
Philanthropy News Digest is a resource for finding foundation funding. Foundations make grants to support education, science, literature, and culture.
