How to search for funding?

Searching for sources to fund your research or scholarly activity can be a challenging task. At this time, ORA does not have the staffing to perform funding searches for our medical community. However, the Funding Opportunity Databases list below provides links to both federal and private sources. This list is not an exhaustive source, but rather a compass in your endeavor to identify applicable sponsors and opportunities.

Funding Opportunity Databases

Research Spending, Data & Reports

  • NIH Research Portfolio Online Reporting Tool (RePORT)

    RePORT provides access to reports, data, and analyses of NIH research activities, including information on grants awarded, expenditures, and the results of NIH supported research.

  • Research.gov

    Research Spending & Results

    Research Spending & Results gives the public, the scientific community, and Congress insight into federally funded research. Research Spending & Results provides information about how federal research dollars are being spent, what research is being performed, and how the outcomes of research are benefiting society as a whole. Anyone can easily access, search, and sort information in new ways through Research.gov. Currently, information is available for NSF and NASA awards.
