Intramural funding opportunities are supported within the University of Utah and cater to University of Utah faculty looking for support on advanced or preliminary research projects. This includes seed and engine funding as well as specific challenges, initiatives and fellowships offered by various department, colleges or research units.
The Research Development Office helps University of Utah researchers and scholars identify federal funding opportunities, form effective teams, and craft winning proposals, with the ultimate goal of increasing the quality and quantity of externally-funded research and scholarly activity at the University of Utah. Please contact Gay Cookson at 801-581-4168 if you are interested in applying for an opportunity listed below.
Limited Submissions are extramural funding opportunities that limit the number applications submitted per institution. Faculty that are interested in applying for a limited submission that is not posted on InfoReady must contact the Office of the Vice President for Research to verify their eligibility and ensure that another application has not been selected to submit. Failure to comply with this internal submission process may lead to the automatic rejection of a proposal selected by the University of Utah.
Extramural Funding Opportunities include grant programs, open nominations and grant associated webinars to leverage external dollars for research projects without going through the limited submissions process. The competitions outlined in this section are open calls for state and government funding opportunities.
Corporate and foundation partners are looking to support projects and programs at the U that are unique, exciting, and stand out from the crowd. The University of Utah Corporate and Foundation Relations program can help facilitate the relationship between you and potential partners. Our team can advise strategic approaches, arrange visits, review draft proposals and help translate ideas into fundable projects or programs.
