The University of Oklahoma faculty and staff have access to a vast array of mechanisms to help support their research and creative activities. Resources include internal support and seed funding, along with assistance in identifying external sponsors consisting of federal agencies, state agencies, private foundations, and corporations. In addition, the Office of Research Services (ORS) assists faculty and staff in navigating sponsors’ guidelines, requirements, and submission processes, as well as negotiating terms and conditions for all external awards received.
Please use the Internal Support and Seed Funding link above to review funding provided by or through the Office of the Vice President for Research and Partnerships (OVPRP). This includes Research Council programs, Arts & Humanities Faculty Fellowships, and other OVPRP support administered through the colleges and University Libraries.
The External Funding Resources link provides information about the different types of sponsored research funding and avenues for finding funding opportunities, as well as guidance regarding OU’s limited submission process and subaward/subcontract procedures.
