Finding Funding

Princeton researchers are supported in their work through funding from government agencies, corporations, foundations, and other University-specific sources. While the majority of sponsored awards arise from faculty-initiated proposals to federal sponsors, additional funding is available for specific projects or programs. ORPA administers all externally funded sponsored research, and plays a role from proposal through close-out. 

The first step in obtaining funding is identifying appropriate opportunities. Although there is no single database that provides comprehensive information, the resources on these pages may be helpful.
