Helping OHSU researchers with funding opportunities, proposals, grantsmanship, and research-related professional development. See funding resources
WelcomeWelcome 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 OpportunityCollins Medical Trust
Provides funding three times a year to faculty and postdoctoral fellows. The purpose of these awards is to aid, further, promote and develop research related to the cause, cure, and treatment of human diseases. The Trust typically provides seed funding for projects that will be eligible for NIH or other substantial funding. Successful proposals will impact the health of Oregonians, but also have the potential to impact research nationally. Young investigators applying should describe their relationship with a mentor to demonstrate they have guidance in their work. Postdoctoral fellows, faculty, and medical residents are eligible. Graduate students are encouraged to work with their PI/mentor to submit a grant, with their mentor/PI as the applicant. OHSU can submit up to 15 applications for each deadline;therefore, instead of accepting applications on a first-come, first-served basis, interested applicants will have a one-week window to submit a Notice of Intent to the OHSU Foundation.
