Private Funding Options

Private foundations provide resources to fund crucial research and program needs. WSU has strong relationships with several foundations through the Office of Foundation Relations. If you’d like to know more about these opportunities, please send a request to cfr@wsu.edu

Limited Submission Opportunities

In Limited Submission opportunities, the sponsor restricts the number of applications or proposals an institution can submit. WSU initiates an internal screening process to determine which application(s) will be approved for submission to the sponsor. You must fill out and email res.dev@wsu.edu an application or template to apply for a limited submission opportunity.

To receive an email notification of the limited submission programs, please sign up for our Limited Submission ListServ.

Complete the Limited Submission application using the appropriate template.

Email completed applications to res.dev@wsu.edu.  If you have missed the internal deadline, please contact res.dev@wsu.edu. In the event that no other pre-proposals were received, you may be approved to proceed with a proposal to the agency.
