The Office of the Vice Chancellor (OVCR) for Research offers a variety of tools and resources to help faculty, students, and staff identify opportunities for scholarly activities.
The OVCR coordinates a seed grant funding competition for research and several faculty awards:
Throughout the year, the OVCR coordinates numerous Limited Campus Competitions. These competitions are required because many private foundations and federal government agency programs only allow a limited number of nominees from invited institutions, like CU-Boulder. The review process is conducted by a group of faculty who are invited by the Vice Chancellor for Research to serve on the OVCR Review Board. Based on their evaluations, nominees are selected to compete for these limited awards.
The following sites and resources serve as databases of international, national, regional, and local external funding opportunities for fellowships and grants.
