Research Funding Application Support

Vice President for Research: Limited Submissions

Limited Submissions are extramural funding opportunities that limit the number of applications submitted per institution. The Limited Submissions page on the Vice President for Research’s website has a curated list of funding opportunities that are under review by the Limited Submissions committee.

Corporate and Foundation Funding

Not interested in federal funding opportunities like NEH, or NSF? There is a whole (wild!) world of foundations out there. The University of Utah Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations plays a major role in supporting the institution’s mission of teaching, research, and public service. Working closely with the various campus areas, they help initiate and cultivate relationships between the University and private organizations to support U programs.


Pivot is a research database available to all University of Utah faculty, staff and students through CIS.

The Vice President for Research’s website provides numerous tutorials on Pivot. However, you may contact our Associate Dean for Research to get help setting up a search or check out this collection of helpful links.

Office of Research Administration

Transform is partnering with the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences and the College of Humanities to offer you the services of the Office of Research Administration (ORA).

ORA’s Grants & Contracts Manager and Officer are available to assist your application process and have developed a series of guidelines and templates — including research facilities resources and descriptions. They can also help you navigate the process of the Office of Sponsored Programs.
