Funding Opportunities for Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences
Funding Opportunities for Early Career Investigators
Several federal and nonfederal agencies offer research opportunities specifically for early career investigators. Please note that FIU’s Office of Research and Economic Development (ORED) has numerous tools available to assist early career investigators in the preparation of grant proposals. For example, the ORED website contains boilerplate text on FIU and for some mandatory grant requirements, such as NIH and NSF data management plans, and features links to valuable grantwriting resource materials. In addition, to guide preparation of competitive proposals, many FIU faculty members generously agree to share copies of their funded proposals.
ORED offers several mechanisms to improve the quality of grant proposals prior to submission. For example, with advance notice, ORED will provide proofreading and editorial services for general grantsmanship. It will also attempt to secure scientific reviews from FIU faculty members with content expertise and/or track records of funding from specific agencies. Faculty members who complete their grants six weeks prior to deadlines may qualify for FIU’s External Review Service, which provides funds to obtain written reviews from up to two senior investigators not affiliated with FIU. If you wish to learn more about services available to early career investigators, please contact Maureen Pelham, Director of Research Development.
Each week, FIU’s Office of Research and Economic Development (ORED) distributes funding announcements via the Office of Research and Economic Development listserv. While many recent announcements from major funding agencies are included, please note that the list is not exhaustive.
To conduct extensive or focused searches for additional funding opportunities in the arts, humanities, and social sciences, FIU faculty are encouraged to access the Sponsored Program Information Network (SPIN), a subscription service that provides web-based resources and searchable databases for federal and non-federal funding opportunities. By creating profiles in InfoEd, faculty may receive customized notifications of funding opportunities through the SMARTS and GENIUS systems. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance in setting up a profile. For links to InfoEd, GENIUS, and several other searchable databases, including The Foundation Center RFP Bulletin and The Foundation Center Finding Funders websites, please click here.
