The College of Liberal Arts supports CLA faculty pursuing research funding. Along with helping to guide faculty through grant application and proposal development, collaborations, and award management, we are committed to working with faculty new to grant writing, approaching sponsors, creating a proposal plan, and navigating the OSU’s compliance and approval processes.

Faculty in CLA have been successful with a variety of federal granting agencies including the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, the USDA, Department of Energy, NOAA, and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Several state and international agency contracts also support CLA faculty and graduate research assistants. Our faculty have also received support from private foundations.

We are excited to work with you. If you are looking for external funding, contact us.
