Federal government agencies provide the majority of research funds for Drexel investigators. Most federal agencies maintain their own research funding portals and provide overall guidelines and documentation to assist you in your proposal development.
The central database for federal grants is Grants.gov. Another federal database is Beta.SAM.gov, which provides opportunities for larger research projects and other goods and services by investigators. Both of these sites offer customizable email notification services for upcoming solicitations. However, for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and National Science Foundation (NSF), we encourage you to continue using those agencies' own websites as well.
