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

Collins Medical Trust
Provides funding to faculty, medical residents, and postdoctoral fellows. The Trust typically provides seed funding of $25,000 to $30,000 over one year for projects that will be eligible for NIH or other substantial funding, as well as for medical education projects. Successful proposals will impact the health of Oregonians, but also have the potential to have national impact. OHSU is limited to 15 applications for each of the Trust's annual deadlines, and typically two to four projects are funded each round. Interested applicants have a one-week window from Feb. 3 to 10 to submit a notice of intent form to the OHSU Foundation.
