ORD monitors newsletters, listserv announcements, and databases of funding opportunities in order to disseminate funding opportunities to faculty throughout the Clemson community via posting on the ORD webpage and through each college’s office of the associate dean for research (ADR). ORD also assists faculty in finding funding through SPIN, a program that notifies investigators of opportunities based on keywords.
Some funding opportunities limit the number of applications that an institution can submit per cycle. Clemson University must select its most competitive proposal(s), which requires an internal evaluation. The mission of ORD is to establish and implement a fair, effective, and timely process for internal competitions for limited-submission funding opportunities.
Some awards, honors, and grants are specifically for young/early career investigators.
Clemson University has made great strides in research in recent years, culminating in our distinction as a Carnegie R1: Doctoral University (highest research activity). To further build our research reputation, and in support of our faculty, the Division of Research has several internal funding opportunities.
These funding opportunities are sourced from private funding or foundations and may help you as you research diverse ways to fund your research, teaching, or programmatic development plans.
ORD works with the Provost’s Office to manage applications for external honors and awards for which Clemson faculty members are eligible. ORD assists with interpreting award guidelines, developing letters of nomination, and proofreading and editing all elements of the application.
