Click here to explore Division of Research (DOR) funding opportunities.

Researchers are encouraged to sign up for a PIVOT account, a free tool to get connected to funding opportunities. Refer to the Pivot Quick State Guide for help getting started.

Researchers may also register for an ORCID ID here. ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier (an ORCID ID) that you own and control, distinguishing you from other researchers. Some research publishers may require an ORCID ID for submission.

Internal Award opportunities are also available through DOR.
