Funding Your Research

Funding Your Work

Whether you’re working on the next great medical breakthrough, developing a thought-provoking work of art or wanting to do something good for the community, the Office of Research Development and Strategic Initiatives can help you find and secure funding.

We work with researchers and other UofL faculty to:

  • Identify relevant funding sources;
  • Develop their proposals;
  • Problem solve;
  • Secure outside support from grant reviewers, etc.;
  • Work with the Office of Sponsored Programs Administration to submit the proposal on-time to the funding sponsor with all requested materials.

The first step in this process is, of course, finding the best funding mechanism for the work you’re trying to do. Next, RDSI can help you navigate the development submission process, setting your proposal up for success.
