Find Funding Opportunities

This guide is intended to help University of Texas at Austin faculty, staff, and students find funding opportunities.

Summary and Reminders

As You Think About Finding Funding and About Your Search Strategy

Reminders and top sources when looking for funding:


Advertised Funding Opportunities

  • Pivot (Coming Soon) is a tool intended to help expand searching and save time.  It is being added as one of the library databases, to allow searching advertised funding opportunities from various kinds of sponsors and includes an alert option.  That is, you can ask to receive notifications about new funding opportunities that match your search or interests.
  • Essential agency.  If you do not want to miss any posts from a particular agency, be sure and follow announcements from that agency.  
  • Organizations.  Also, especially if you are thinking of travel, scholarships, or smaller awards, remember membership organizations.
  • Notifications.  Sign up for notifications when you can.


Funding Opportunities Through Foundations

  • Foundations and the Right Match.  Establishment of a foundation implies an intention to support certain causes or types of work.  We don't expect the foundation to advertise its funding opportunities; instead those requiring support look to find the right foundation. 
  • Foundation Center and the Regional Foundation Library.  The Foundation Center is known as the nation's leading authority on philanthropy.  UT's premium access to their products is through the Regional Foundation Library, a unit of UT-Austin, located at 1009 East 11th Street in Austin.
