Extramural Funding

We locate external funding and collaboratives that closely align with your research goals.


Funding Institutional

Funding Institutional (FI), is a searchable database containing data on funding opportunities, funders, and awarded grants, drawn from a wide range of governmental and private sources. Faculty, students and staff can use FI to:
  • Search for funding opportunities
  • Find new sources of external grant income
  • Identify potential collaborators and find investigators that are securing grants in their field of interest
  • Survey funding trends
  • Set up alerts to be notified automatically of new funding opportunities
  • Investigators utilizing FI can expect to increase grant rate success, uncover new sources of funding, and maximize time and productivity.

Limited Submissions

Many federal agencies and foundations offer grants, awards and fellowships limiting the number of proposals that can come from one institution. To increase the chances of funding success, UTHSC must submit its most competitive proposal, which requires an internal competition. The Office of Research Development will notify investigators of these opportunities according to the procedure below, and review internal pre-proposals.

Limited Submission Process

Limited submission opportunities are sent out via the Research and FundOPs listservs. These notifications will contain all information and links needed. 
Pre-proposals meeting the eligibility requirements are reviewed by committee for evaluation, with final nomination decisions made by the Vice Chancellor for Research. You will be notified as soon as possible of the status of your submission.

InfoReady Review
