Funding Sources

Sponsored project funding comes from a range of external sources -- i.e., sponsors -- including governmental agencies, business interests, and nonprofit organizations. Such sponsors issue individual solicitations, announcing the availability of specific awards to support projects of a specified nature or type.  University of Iowa faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to explore external funding opportunities, reviewing sponsor websites, program solicitations, eligibility criteria, and application guidelines, as well as the internal funding opportunities linked to this section.
