Funding Opportunities Announcement

Aug. 28, 2014

Welcome to the
Research Development Services
Funding Opportunities Announcement


Dear Colleague,

Since my arrival on campus at the end of May, the Office for Research & Discovery has been hard at work considering various tactics to reach the goal of doubling research activity articulated in the campus’s Never Settle  strategic plan.  Scholars across campus have communicated the need to receive current and timely information on available funding opportunities to support their research.  I am pleased to introduce to you the new Funding Opportunities Announcement (see below), a weekly email update on recently released funding opportunities and upcoming deadlines, along with campus and agency funding news. The Research Development Services staff have designed these regular announcements to keep you informed – arriving weekly in your email box to minimize your burden and make searching convenient.
With the breadth and depth of research on our campus – the list of available funding opportunities for any week is usually large.  If you open the email in your browser, the discipline-specific “buttons” take you right to the opportunities that pertain to that area.  Of course, with interdisciplinary work being the hallmark of the UA, you may want to peruse the opportunities in more than one area!  If you prefer not to receive this weekly email announcement, please hit the link at the bottom to unsubscribe.  A Research Development Services staff would be happy to meet with you individually to help you identify funding opportunities or to sign you up for other targeted electronic search services if you choose.
This Funding Opportunities Announcement is just one type of assistance that our Research Development Services unit provides to UA researchers.  Our overarching goal is to help you turn your great ideas into competitive proposals, so that you can garner the needed external funding resources to support your research program.  Please check out the current menu of available services at  http://rgw.arizona.edu/research-services/research-development-services.  Over this next year, Research Development Services are planning to provide new workshops and programs, so you may want to check the site periodically.
The Office for Research & Discovery welcomes your feedback on this and on other types of assistance we might provide our community. You are welcome to email me at VPR-ResDev@email.arizona.edu.  I wish you best success in your research this semester.  KAE
