Find Funding

The Office of Research and Grant Development offers tools and resources to support USC faculty and staff seeking federal, private, or internal funding.

External Funding Opportunities

Funding opportunities are easier to locate with Pivot®, a one-stop approach to browsing databases for funding, limited submissions and collaborative partners at USC and other universities. 


Internal Funding Opportunities

Through the ASPIRE Program, USC faculty have the opportunity to compete for funding to begin a promising new research endeavor for later external funding, build up a collaborative, interdisciplinary research project, and/or invest in the university's research infrastructure. The goal of these investments is to enhance the University of South Carolina's research capabilities.

The Research Initiative for Summer Engagement, or RISE Program, was initiated in 2012 to support summer research for faculty members at USC’s system campuses. Since its inception, RISE has provided support for faculty to complete book manuscripts, write articles and prepare external grant applications.
