Identify Funding

The first step in the external funding process is to find a funding opportunity. Below are a few resources we encourage you to use to find external funding opportunities. Once you find a funding opportunity for which you would like to apply, our Prepare & Submit Proposals section will provide guidance on developing and assembling your proposal.

It is important to note that some opportunities limit the number of submissions from each institution. Illinois has a Limited Submission Selection Process to choose the proposals from campus that will be submitted to the sponsor for consideration.
