Welcome! This guide has been developed in cooperation with the UMassD Sponsored Projects Administration (SPA) and is meant to be an introduction to identifying funding opportunities and for providing assistance in locating governmental and private sources of funding for research. Researchers interested in exploring these funding opportunities should contact SPA directly.
