Funding Opportunities

Within CVM: Iowa Livestock Health Advisory Council (ILHAC) seed grant program accepts proposals for projects that address commodity group priorities; CVM Seed Grants program distributes USDA Capacity funding for Animal Health projects and state funds for other research.
Within ISU: Internal funding opportunities from the Office of the Vice President for Research (VPR), like the seed grant programs offered within CVM, are focused on helping investigators develop strong applications for external funding opportunities.
ISU Subscription Databases: The Grants Hub Toolbox contains links and tutorials for Pivot, Grant Forward, and Foundation Directory Online as well as a list of federal, state, and non-government resources.  Tip for success - keep your ISU webpage updated so the information on Pivot will be accurate.  The Office of Research and Graduate Studies can help with this.
Industry Sponsored Research: The Office of Intellectual Property and Technology Transfer (OIPTT) has created helpful guides for Finding Industry Collaborators and Protecting Your Research Data and Materials. Tip for success - contacting OIPTT early is better than late.
