To borrow a phrase, winter is coming, and with it comes Intersession. Along with having some space to read for pleasure, comes the opportunity to get your research funded! The University at Albany has several resources to help you locate and apply for grants to fund your research.
The Division for Research should be your first stop. This section of the University’s website has information on news and events, reports, awards, tools for researchers, and several other useful links to help you along the way to conducting your research. Most important to the topic at hand, there is a link for Funding Opportunities. Here you will find information about funding initiatives within the university itself, but also links to external funding sources that you can pursue. In addition, the Office for Sponsored Programs provides support and information to get you started down the right path.
Once you find a potential source for funding, however, the grant proposal looms. Fortunately, we at the Dewey Graduate Library are here to help you too! All of the University Libraries have several books on the topic of getting grants and writing grant proposals in both the general and reference collections. Take a look at the bibliography below to see what we have available.
As always, if you have any questions, please stop in or contact the reference desk by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (518) 442-3691.
