Identifying Funding Opportunities
The first step in obtaining funding for your project is to determine where to apply. Funds for projects can come from two places: internal or external sources. If the required funding is modest (a few hundred to few thousand dollars), the Provost's Office has internal funds for things like curriculum development, travel to professional conferences, and faculty-student research. This money is limited, however, so huge requests cannot usually be accommodated—and it’s always better to get your application in sooner than later.
Most funding Lawrence receives through this office, though, comes from external sources: private foundations, government agencies, and corporate foundations. And the CFSR office has many research tools for helping you ferret out the right funding opportunity for your project.
