Funding Opportunities


ETSU offers several programs for funding faculty in their research and other areas.  These include the Research Development Committee grants, Instructional Development Grants, the Curriculum Internationalization Faculty Grant Program, Presidential Grants-in-Aid, Student/Faculty Collaborative Research Grants, and the Travel Award for Arts and Sciences Faculty (TAASF).

Go to our Internal Funding Opportunities page to learn more about these grant programs.


 ETSU subscribes to a database of funding opportunities called "Pivot".  As long as you are on campus, you may search without creating a username and password.  But you WILL need an account if you want to track an opportunity for later viewing or access Pivot from an off-campus location. 

Go to Pivot

      Also, see our Training page for open workshops about using Pivot to find funding opportunities.

The Pivot on YouTube  channel is very helpful, featuring short how-to videos.

For personalized assistance with finding funding opportunities, please contact Carole Thomason at or 439-6059.
