Sources of Research Funding
Determining which sources to approach for research funding is one of the most important, and challenging, pieces of the grant application process.
IPSR Pre-Award staff can conduct funding searches and help researchers at KU identify funding sources that are appropriate for their research. Contact Nancy Myers (firstname.lastname@example.org) to initiate this process.
