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.

Atlanta Clinical & Transitional Science Institute

The goal of ACTSI is to leverage grant programs to promote clinical and translational science. Grants are offered throughout the year through the Community Engagement and Research Technologies programs. The Community Engagement program serves to provide funds for community-based research initiatives. The Research Technologies programs serves to provide the programmatic foundation to support existing and new technology resources in the clinical community.

Emory Medical Care Foundation (EMCF) Grants

The EMCF makes grants up to $30,000 to support research by Emory faculty who are based at least 50% of their time at Grady Memorial Hospital. Proposals are due February 1, June 1, and October 1 each year (if the 1st falls on a holiday or weekend, then submission is due the following Monday or non-holiday work day). 

Emory University Research Committee (URC)

The URC awards grants for short-term research goals that can be accomplished in one year or less. All full-time Emory faculty, both tenured and non-tenured, are eligible. Support may be requested for projects of one year or less in duration.
