External Funding Assistance for ISU Researchers

The Grants Hub is a centralized unit at Iowa State University within the Office of the Vice President for Research that provides a broad range of services, resources, and training to help researchers find, obtain, and manage external funding. In particular, the Grants Hub aims to assist new researchers’ pursuit of funding and help experienced researchers reach higher levels of funding.

Many of the Grants Hub’s functions are also designed to assist Iowa State’s research administrators. These functions include developing resources for research administration and offering training opportunities for research administrators.

Currently, the Grants Hub offers seven different services: Finding Funding, Proposal Consultation, Budget Consultation/Preparation, Editing, Graphics, Project Management, and Award Review. The services are available for request by clicking the red “Submit a Request” link on this page.
