Large, Complex and Multi-Disciplinary Grants Assistance

You provide the research, you provide the content, OPD provides you with the tools and resources to bring it all together!

  • Funding Opportunity Identification

    OPD provides assistance in locating appropriate funding opportunities to match your research interests. Please visit our Funding Opportunities tab to learn more about our funding resources.

    You can also contact OPD directly for a custom funding opportunities search.

  • Collaborator and Partner Identification

Many funding opportunities call for multi-disciplinary teams to study a topic from many different angles. For others, a proposal involving faculty from complementary fields increases the chances of a successful proposal. 

OPD provides assistance in recommending and introducing FSU-based faculty who can bring additional, complementary expertise to your proposal. Just fill out our Collaboration Request, and OPD will contact you as soon as possible!

OPD can also help identify external collaborators at other institutions, or potential project partners in local or state agencies, non-profit groups, or private industry. Contact OPD directly for assistance in identifying external partners.
