Additional Resources, Including Limited Submissions

The UC Davis Office of Research provides a number of resources to help you find funding for your research. In addition to those listed above, we also circulate newsletters each week that contain important funding opportunity announcements, in addition to pertinent news and events. While the InfoReady Review platform is a great place for researchers to find intramural funding opportunities, it is also where we coordinate the internal selection process for Limited Submission opportunities (when a Request for Proposals limits the number of proposals an institution may submit).
