In collaboration with the Office of the Provost, the Office of Research and Economic Development identifies external funding sources that support scholarship, research, and training in the arts, humanities, and social sciences and assists with the submission of applications.
Where can I find information on external funding sources in the arts, humanities, and social sciences?
Federal and nonfederal funding sources for the arts, humanities, and social sciences are posted here. Be sure to check this website often, as new programs are added as information becomes available. While every attempt is made to ensure that the list is comprehensive and accurate, faculty may learn of funding opportunities that do not appear below. If you are interested in an opportunity that is not listed on our site, please contact Maureen Pelham, Director, Research Development.
Asterisks that appear by a subset of the funding opportunities denote High Value Faculty Awards and Fellowships recognized as particularly prestigious by Florida Board of Governors (BOG) and eligible for one-time awards from the Faculty Research Incentive Program. These awards enhance the university’s reputation, influence the university’s rankings, and contribute to the BOG’s evaluation of FIU on key performance indicators.
What is the procedure for applying for a faculty award or fellowship?
The procedure for applying for a faculty award or fellowship is the same as applying for a grant. All faculty members who intend to apply for a faculty award or fellowship must complete an Electronic Proposal Routing Approval Form (ePRAF). All must be submitted to ORED’s Pre-Award Unit at least five business days prior to agency deadlines. It is important to note that ePRAF routing is mandatory for High Value Awards and Fellowships: One-time incentives will not be distributed for High Value Awards and Fellowships that were not routed through the Electronic Proposal Routing Approval process.
If you need assistance with development of your application or have prepared a draft of your application and would like someone to review content and/or proofread, please contact Maureen Pelham from Research Development within the Office of Research and Economic Development.
If you need assistance with filling out the Electronic Proposal Routing and Approval Form(ePRAF), developing budgets, filling out agency forms, uploading attachments and assistance with electronic routing of proposals, click here.
If your ePRAF has been received by the Office of Research and Economic Development and is ready for submission to the sponsor, please contact Ludmilla Etienne in the Office of Pre-Award for additional information.
