External Funding Resources

Pivot and GrantForward are databases that allow faculty, students, and staff to search for funding opportunities. All UVA students, faculty, and staff can also create personal accounts so that they can save searches and set up email alerts. Links to the tools and to tutorials are below.

Limited Submissions

There are Funded Opportunities in which UVA is only allowed to submit a limited number of applications. Therefore, an internal competition is required. You can read about current opportunities or contact limited-submission-vpr@virginia.edu for more information and answers to your questions.

Limted Submission opportunities are coordinated by the Office of the Vice President for Research (VPR) to private foundations, federal agencies, and other outside sponsors. The Limited Submissions team along with the Limited Submission Committee in the VPR Office coordinates limited submission opportunities from outside sponsors.

UVA faculty, students, and staff can use this page to identify and apply for Limited Submission Opportunities and Other Internal Awards.

To submit internal applications click on the opportunity of interest and follow the instructions. Once you have submitted your application you will receive a confirmation email.

If you have any questions, please contact Joel Baumgart.
