VCU Centers, Institutes, and other VCU research initiatives
VCU’s Centers and Institutes conduct unique investigative collaborations to add value to the university in terms of intellectual power, resources and collaborative potential, extramural funding and resource development. Consider contacting a VCU Center or Institute in relevant areas of research interest.
The Department of Health and Human Services’ Grants Forecast is a database of planned grant opportunities proposed by its agencies. Each Forecast record contains actual or estimated dates and funding levels for grants that the agency intends to award during the fiscal year. Forecast opportunities are subject to change based on enactment of congressional appropriations.
The Office of the Vice President for Research’s Research Development team can assist faculty with obtaining external funding.
