Sponsored Programs Office
The Sponsored Programs Office (SPO) can help Aurora Health Care program directors/principal investigators (PD/PI) identify external funding sources for research projects.
**A number of tools and resources are available that aid in the process for identifying potential sponsors to support these activities. Aurora Health Care PD/PIs can contact Mary Groce at 414-219-7846 to add their names to the SPO's weekly funding opportunities email list and/or may use the Funding Needs Form (Word Doc, 144 KB) to request a targeted funding search for a project.
Things to consider when looking for funding:
- Understanding whether your project/idea is research or non-research/programmatic will narrow down your search for funding.
- Thinking about the service area and population affected by your project can help identify a variety of potential funding sources, groups/locations and focus-specific funders.
- Google.com can be a great place to start. Enter a keyword (or a phrase in quotes) along with the words grant or funding.
Subscribing to LISTSERVS is an excellent way to stay on top of funding opportunities as they become available.
Please contact SPO for further information and assistance.
