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.
Whether you prefer to search on your own or you would like to work with a librarian, MCW Libraries offers resources to assist you.
Request an appointment with a librarian. Please provide 2-3 dates/times that work well for you. We can meet in person or via WebEx.
To learn more about searching for funding, view our Grants & Funding guide and find links to online resources, books, and other sources of information on grants, grant writing, and funding. You can also learn about internal support at MCW that's available to you in your quest to find funding.
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.
