Find External Funding for research, travel, writing, or artistic projects.
- SPIN (Sponsored Research Information Network). This is Iowa’s largest subscription database. You can use the open box like a Google toolbar, but we recommend an Advanced Search (find directions at the bottom of this page).
- Grants 4 Hawks side links. These include both UI resources (like Oliva Smith’s Grant Bulletin, and those from other schools (I like this one). Join Grants 4 Hawks Facebook page to get updates on opportunities and UI winners during the academic year.
Visit the Office. Make an appointment with the gradgrants office to run a search and discuss available opportunities. Contact Jennifer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Internal Funding (support from inside the University) has the benefits of a shorter timeline and less competition.
