Funding Opportunities

Need support for research or a creative project? Wondering if a new idea might be attractive to funding agencies? Schedule an appointment with the Office of Foundation, Corporate and Government Relations (FCGR) to discuss your area of scholarly interest. Please bring an up-to-date curriculum vitae and a one-page summary of your project.

During this meeting, we will assist you in developing a plan for seeking support, which may begin with a search of our funding databases. Following our discussion, you will receive a report providing an overview of possible funding opportunities.

The University of Richmond subscribes to the Grant Advisor and Sponsored Programs Information Network (SPIN) databases to search for additional funding opportunities. They may be accessed from anywhere on campus. You can also review the programs and guidelines of several major private and public funders by selecting from the categories below.

If you have problems connecting to any of these sites or have suggestions for additions to the list, please contact us at
