UNM faculty, students, and staff can access the Pivot funding search database when they are logged into their myUNM or are using the university network. Pivot is a comprehensive global source of funding opportunities enabling researchers to search for specific funders or to use key words to sort through funding relative to their research goals. The Foundation Directory Online is available through the Library to anyone logged into their myUNM. Early Career Investigators are also encouraged to look at our Early Career Funding Opportunities page where they can find funding opportunities from major sponsors specific to their current career status. Internal UNM seed funding opportunities are below and results of those relative to the Office of the Vice President for Research can be found on the Faculty Support Initiatives page. You can schedule a meeting with a funding specialist by clicking the Request for Proposal Support button below.
This website will continue to update as more COVID-19 specific funding opportunities are made available. If you find something that you believe should be added to the website, please email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
