Welcome to Research Funding & Development Services. We're a central resource to help investigators at Oregon Health and Science University find funding, assess funding strategy, and write better grants.

Featured Funding Opportunity

OHSU Presidential Bridge Funding
Bridge funding is available for established investigators threatened by an imminent lapse in research support. Investigators can request up to $50,000 in funding for one year to help bridge them while they generate data to restore funding. Up to 10 awards may be made this funding cycle. Awards are available only to OHSU investigators. The PI must be an independent scientist. Independence is defined by: rank at the level of assistant professor or above; committed institutional support such as space and salary; a track record of first-authored or senior-authored publications; a recent history of federal (or similar) funding; and imminently planned or pending application for funding on a national level. Postdoctoral fellows and similar trainees are not eligible to apply.
