Information on Funding Sources for Scientific Research and Programs

The Office of Grants and Contracts (OGAC) at Monmouth University subscribes to the Grant Resource Center of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities and receives comprehensive bulletins and a monthly database of available funding from public and private sources. From this information OGAC develops a monthly calendar and database of available funding that MU faculty and staff may have an interest in. OGAC alerts faculty and staff via e-mail periodically throughout the year with a link to the database.

For more information and instructions on how to obtain access to the GRC website, please log into the MyMU Portal and navigate to the For Your Information tab and select Grant Resource Center from the expanded navigation menu.

For daily updates of funding announcements from all 26 federal grant-making agencies, please go to and then click on “Find Grant Opportunities.” You can also do a keyword search by clicking on Grant Search on the right hand side of the page.

If your interest is specifically in private funding sources (corporate and/or foundation), Monmouth University subscribes to the Foundation Center database and their CD-Rom which includes descriptions and contact information for foundation funding sources and which is available for everyone (faculty, staff, students, and the larger community) to use free at the Monmouth University Library.

Faculty can also contact the Monmouth University Office of Institutional Advancement at 732-263-5256 for foundation information and support on specific projects that might be eligible for foundation funding.

The staff of the OGAC will be happy to meet with and provide any required assistance in identifying potential funding sources for any scientific research or programs that faculty and/or staff may have an interest in.
