On Wednesday, November 8, Michelle Christy, Director, ORPA and Joe Broderick, ORPA’s Associate Director, led a Lunch ‘n Learn seminar on “How to find funding for your research using on-line tools and resources.”
To identify potential sponsor, they recommended a variety of strategies. Colleagues will usually have a good idea of the range of grant opportunities. You can check the online CVs of the leaders in your field. The acknowledgments in journals will often contain useful information about the granting agencies associated with the research. Online database searches will often provide productive matches between your interests and available grants. And you can set alerts that will automatically inform you via e-mail or special web pages that new opportunities are available.
