Find Funding

With literally hundreds of funding sources with thousands of individual programs and opportunities, determining which of these sources are appropriate for faculty projects can be a daunting task that demands a variety of approaches.

In an effort to assist faculty in advancing research, funding search services are being offered by MCW Libraries and the Office of Research in partnership with the Office of Development to alert faculty to potential funding opportunities. We can work with you to set up a search in Pivot and set up funding alerts so that you will be alerted when new funding opportunities are added to the database. To see examples of search results from Pivot, visit our Grants & Funding guide.

When applying for funding, read the application carefully!

Be mindful when applying to unfamiliar grant funding sources. The Funding Agency/Company may insist that their terms and conditions apply as soon as you make the application, and they may not be prepared to negotiate terms. Also, be aware that some funding sources may not agree to keep the contents of your application confidential.

Per MCW policy, all faculty and staff must work through the Office of Development before approaching or responding to private foundations for funding. Please contact the Office of Development at (414) 955-4739 with questions.
