Research Grant Support

Grants, scholarships, fellowships and pilot funds help to support our groundbreaking biomedical research. Funding opportunities from the federal government are shared on, the Foundation Center is a database of philanthropy, Pivot is a searchable database, and the Grantsmanship Center lists grants available by state. Frequently used NIH research grant programs are described by Activity Code. NIH Research Career Development website includes links to NIH applications and instructions. Learn more about how to prepare a winning application.

All proposals from GW students, faculty and staff must utilize myResearch for electronic routing and approval through the Office of Sponsored Projects. Even if a proposal is submitted electronically via an agency’s website, it must also be routed through Cayuse! All school and institute-level approvals must be complete five full business days prior to the funding agency deadline.
