Office of Grants & Research

Upcoming Opportunities

Communications regarding federal funding priorities for FY 16-17 have been received. It is clear that individuals from UW-Green Bay seeking funding for their research activities will have the greatest opportunity for success in gaining that funding if their proposals are addressed to one of the priorities. As such, the UWGB Office of Grants & Research (OG&R) will be focusing on identifying grant opportunities that meet one of the following federal priorities:

An important criterion for all proposals by all Agencies will be the use of evidence-based outcomes.

In order to assist in the search for funding of research projects OG&R will submit to the Log funding priority announcements within these categories on a bi-weekly basis. Additionally, upon request faculty who are interested in submitting a proposal within these initiatives will be provided funding opportunities based upon their specific field of interests (keywords provided by potential PIs). When available, examples of funded proposals will be obtained and shared with faculty/staff to assist in their proposal development. OG&R will also provide budget templates and all other necessary forms to the PIs and assist with budget and proposal development as requested.

It is suggested that student research projects, especially those that will have the potential for presentation as part of Posters in the Rotunda, be focused on one of the priorities noted above.
