Funding Opportunities

Dartmouth College research and other programs rely on a variety of funders including federal agencies, private foundations, state agencies and corporations to support research efforts.  Internal pilot or other funds also play an important role.  Funding opportunities can range in focus from general support for an area of interest to opportunities that are targeted to the stage of the researcher's career.   The resources below are provided to assist in your search for funding opportunities.   If you need assistance, please contact us at sponsored.projects@dartmouth.edu

Once you have identified a funding source of interest, please contact the Office of Sponsored Projects Pre-award team who will assist in reviewing the funding announcement, answer questions about proposal components and institutional processes, and submit the proposal to the funder.
