This guide was prepared to help members of the university community find financial support for research, travel, and other exploration.
Some background for thinking about funding:
Some funding is advertised and some not.
Government agencies supply funding but so do non-governmental agencies, associations, and foundations.
Government funding-databases may advertise a range of projects, from research to construction.
The usual model of foundation-giving requires the seeker to research foundations.
In support of those seeking support, the university offers resources including the Pivot database and assistance from staff of the Office of the Vice President for Research, the Texas Grants Resource Center, and the University Libraries.
This directory of UT-Austin librarians identifies the librarians by their subject specialties and gives their contact information. They can help identify and help use products for finding funding opportunities.
