A long list of research grant opportunities

The Office of Grants and Research is actively seeking grant funding opportunities that both support the priorities established by Federal agencies and assist members of the UW-Green Bay community in pursuing research and program interests. As promised, OGR is providing a link to its website and a list of funding announcements that match the broad federal priorities (STEM, Education, and Energy). This list will continue to be updated on a bi-weekly basis. Additionally, if you have a specific field of interest and would like assistance in determining potential funding sources, contact OGR and individual searches can be accomplished using keywords provided by potential PIs.

In celebration of the end of the shut-down, this week’s focus is on federal funding opportunities that include several specific to internship opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. www.uwgb.edu/research/funding/opportunities.asp
