Access Funding and Agency Resources

To secure funding for your research, you need to identify the right sponsor and opportunity. As no single database will provide a comprehensive list of all grant opportunities, we offer a number of databases and websites to assist you in your search.

External to WMU

The Office of the Vice President for Research makes available databases and websites from federal and state government agencies, private nonprofit organizations and corporations.

The WMU Research Foundation funding supports the development of intellectual property in efforts to commercialize faculty creations and inventions. The technology development fund provides support to help move faculty inventions and creations forward in the next stage of the commercialization process.

Internal to WMU

Internal support is available from Office of the Vice President for Research, individual colleges and various offices at the University that support faculty research and creative activity.
