Internal Sources of Funding

The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) has compiled this list of Emory University internal funding sources for research and teaching projects as a convenience for the Emory research community. We welcome additions or corrections to this list.

Applicants are encouraged to contact directly the Emory unit that sponsors the grant competition for current information on deadlines and proposal guidelines. Proposals to internal grant competitions within Emory do not need to be routed through OSP.

Please Note: These grant opportunities are available only to faculty and, where noted, students affiliated with Emory University.
