Funding Opportunities for Students
Numerous internal and external funding opportunities are available to students to enhance their individual or collaborative research and scholarship activities. It is the primary responsibility of the staff of the ORSP to identify these funding opportunities for our students and to facilitate submission of competitive proposals. If you need additional help in identifying funding in your discipline or if you need some individualized support to develop a competitive grant proposal, please do not hesitate to contact us or call the ORSP at 615-904-8040.

MTSU has an institutional subscription to GrantForward, a database of funding opportunities. Anyone with an MTSU email address can create an account. The system allows individuals to use automation (by uploading CVs or online publication lists) to create researcher profiles. Users can also manually add additional interests to their profile. By creating a saved search, users can automatically receive emails notifications of funding opportunities on a daily or weekly basis.
