Program and Funding Opportunities

This page contains a summary of opportunities - financial and distinguished awards - that are coordinated by the UF/IFAS Dean for Research Office and are available each year. This summary distinguishes between internal and external opportunities, which depend on whether the UF/IFAS Dean for Research Office is responsible for the final selection. As new opportunities arise, they will be added to this list, so please check it regularly.

The opportunities are listed alphabetically with the most recent call for proposals and announcement of selectees listed beside each, when applicable. For any questions, including information on Limited Opportunity submissions announced by the Office of Research that require a college-level review or selection process, please call our office directly (352-392-1784) or email the persons associated with your submission opportunity of interest (see below).
