Finding Funding

There is a wide range of funding opportunities for Harvard’s researchers within the US federal government, as well as through foundations and other foreign governments, multilateral and non-profit institutions, and corporations. 

Navigating funding announcements and opportunities and identifying which represent the best match can be challenging. While OSP generally does not seek funding opportunities for individual faculty members, this section of the website provides comprehensive information on internal and external funding sources.  

For access to Foundation Directory Online, Community of Science, or SPIN, please visit the FAS Research Administration Services website. Additionally, HMS, HSDM, and HSPH maintain a separate list of funding sources.  For HMS and HSDM please visit the HMS Office of Research Administration website.  For HCSRA please visit the Harvard Chan School Research Administration website. School-based research administration offices also provide on-site support with proposal development and review.
