Federal and Non-Federal Opportunities

Federal Opportunities


Government-sponsored grants comprise the majority of sponsored research funding at Princeton. The federal government provides tens of billions in federal funding through 26 funding agencies. Grants.gov is the single access point for most grant programs, and features a free search tool.   Note that Princeton is already registered with Grants.gov. No additional registration is required. 

Non-Federal Opportunities

Corporate Engagement and Foundation Relations

The University's office of Corporate Engagement and Foundation Relations (CEFR) helps researchers identify and manage funding proposals to corporate and foundation sponsors. CEFR maintains relationships with sponsors that support research across a spectrum of scholarly endeavors. Researchers interested in external partnerships are strongly encouraged to contact them.
