Princeton works with numerous external funding partners to advance our faculty’s research objectives. Each sponsor awards and administers their funding differently, with unique requirements related to everything from proposal guidelines to reporting standards. It is important to familiarize yourself with complete sponsor expectations to ensure full compliance and efficient disbursement of funding.

ORPA uses Princeton ERA to track and submit all research funding proposals. Visit our Princeton ERA page for access and training opportunities. Depending on your proposal, you may also need to utilize a sponsor-specific submission portal.
