Office of Sponsored Research
Grant Resources Center
The Grants Resource Center (GRC), a unit of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU), has enhanced the research and sponsored programs capabilities of higher education institutions since 1967. A subscription to GRC provides you with access to a comprehensive suite of tools, services, and expertise to improve your office’s efficiency and increase your institution’s success in securing competitive grants from federal and private sponsors.
The GrantSearch database contains about 2,000 funding opportunities that support academic activities such as research, education, training, fellowships, program or curriculum development, and/or equipment acquisition. Most programs are cyclical (funded every year) and all cater to national or large regional audiences. Most are geared to faculty or postdoctoral investigators, although the database does include many opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. The goal of GrantSearch is to provide GRC members with access to all the federal cyclical grant programs (those that return every year) as well as other federal and private foundation programs of general interest that make a significant number of awards. The GrantSearch database allows the user to search the funding opportunity database using five criteria: academic subject, activity, funding sponsor, deadline month, and text. More information about each criteria can be accessed by clicking on the various ? (question mark buttons) found throughout the GrantSearch interface.
GRC obtains funded proposals on a regular basis and provides them to members, free of charge, through the funded proposal library. Proposals listed here have come to GRC through individual requests to federal agencies or to successful principal investigators (PIs). Only proposal abstracts are accessible in the proposal library. For a copy of the full proposal, or to share a copy of a funded proposal from your institution, contact Sergio Padilla at email@example.com.
The proposal abstracts available are funded from a variety of sponsors including:
