Internal Funding Resources
To assist faculty in securing competitive research funding, the OVPR has created a number of internal support programs:
- Presidents' Collaborative Research Initiative
- Proposal Support Program
- Proposal Review Program
- Scholarship Catalyst Program (SCP)
- Open Access Publication Initiative
- Seed Grant for Interdisciplinary Research (SGIR) (not currently funded)
- Transdisciplinary Research Academy
Proposal Development Assistance
The OVPR offers a variety of resources and learning opportunities to assist faculty in preparing successful research proposals. See the Faculty Development website for proposal development resources.
To assist faculty in finding research funding, Texas Tech has partnered with COS/Pivot, the most comprehensive source of global funding opportunities. For help setting up your Pivot profile, please contact the Office of Research Development.
Federal, state and private funding agencies occasionally limit the number of proposals and/or applications submitted by an organization in response to a given funding opportunity. These funding opportunities can be found on the Limited Submissions webpage.
