Grants from government agencies comprise the majority share of sponsored research funding at Princeton. Information can be found below or on our Sponsor page.
The federal government provides tens of billions in federal research funding through 26 separate funding agencies. Grants.gov is the single access point for grant programs offered by all federal grant-providing agencies. You may perform searches on funding opportunities free of charge on the Grants.gov site. Select “Find Funding Opportunities” on the left-hand navigation screen and begin your searches. Note that Princeton is registered, and, therefore, no additional action is required for searching opportunities or for submitting proposals.
