UNC Charlotte offers multiple resources to help you locate funding sources for your project, including access to several funding sources databases and internal funding programs.

Funding Sources Databases:

UNC Charlotte offers access to several funding sources databases, including Pivot and the Grants Resource Center, to our faculty, staff with research responsibilities, and graduate students. For more information on these resources, see CRE’s Funding Sources Databases page.

Programs of Interest:

Are you an early-career investigator, or a current PI looking for supplemental funding? Here are some programs that may be of interest to you, along with other information that may be useful as you prepare your application.

Limited Submission Programs:

For programs in which more faculty express interest than are allowed by the program to submit, UNC Charlotte must internally screen all eligible and interested proposals to select those to be submitted. Here are our procedures for Limited Submission Programs, along with deadlines to these programs.

Internal Funding Programs:

UNC Charlotte sponsors several internally-funded programs, including the Faculty Research Grants and Scholarship of Teaching and Learning programs, to help our faculty conduct their research, creative and service activities. More information on these programs is available on our Internal Funding Programs page.

For Graduate Students:

Up-to-date search results from the Pivot funding opportunities database are listed for graduate student scholarships, grants, fellowships, and awards, by discipline, on CRE’s Funding Sources for Graduate Students page. Other resources for graduate students are available on the Graduate School’s funding page.
