Funding, fellowships, & partnerships

Discovering appropriate funding sources and finding potential collaborators can be difficult. We have resources to help.

Funding opportunities

  • The University of Arizona Libraries invite UA-affiliated researchers to apply to the Data Grant Program for the purchase of commercially available data sets. The data can be numerical, geospatial, textual, visual, or audio. The data set cannot include restricted data, such as personally identifiable information (PII) data, HIPAA, ITAR, or other sensitive data. The library’s goal is to build a data collection for broad use by the UA community, and preference will be given to requests that support that goal. 
  • The Office for Research, Innovation and Impact provides tools and resources to identify internal funding and external funding opportunities.
  • Search for public and private funding opportunities through Pivot (also see Pivot tutorials), the Foundation Directory Online, and Grant Forward.
