Finding Funding

Our staff will help researchers locate funding opportunities

This service assists researchers and/or staff interested in finding new funding opportunities using agency websites and searchable databases. ISU subscribes to several grant aggregation databases (See “Resources” section). Through this service, researchers are trained to use the databases and learn how to set up saved searches, shared opportunities, and receive funding alert emails.

Once a service is requested, a member of the Grants Hub staff will contact the researcher to set up their database Log In procedures and a consultation meeting. At this meeting, either by phone or in person, the researcher will provide additional details about their research program and learn about all of the campus resources for finding funding. To request the Finding Funding service, click the red “Submit a Request” button to the right.


The university offers excellent resources to help researchers with finding funding.
