Many funding agencies offer special preference for young investigators or junior faculty members. Criteria for these designations vary between funders; please carefully review the individual programs that are of interest to you. A list of some of these potential granting agencies follows:

Please also review additional funding opportunities on the Discovering Grant Opportunities page. Please note many of these programs have grant cycles that renew each year. Carefully note current and future grant cycles deadlines.

**REMEMBER: According to Campbell University grant policy, all grant submissions and funding proposals must be processed and approved by the Office of Sponsored Research and Programs (OSRP) prior to submission. This ensures that each application is thoroughly vetted and in compliance with university, federal, and funding agency policies and guidelines. Funds received as a result of grant proposals submitted without prior OSRP review and appropriate university-required approvals may be returned to the granting agency.**

The OSRP office is available to support you in your programmatic or research and creative endeavors. Please review the Campbell University Proposal Development & Procedures and contact with any questions.
