Federal Sponsors

The federal government provides tens of billions in federal research funding through twenty-six separate funding agencies. Grants.gov is the single access point for more than 1,000 grant programs offered by all Federal grant making agencies. You can perform searches on funding opportunities free of charge on the Grants.gov site. Select “Find Funding Opportunities” on the left hand navigation screen and begin your searches. Note that you do not need to register. MIT is registered, and therefore no additional action is required for searching or for submitting proposals.
