American federal funding bodies

Are you interested to learn more about American federal research funding? Contact Research Services who manages the submission of proposals and project reports.

Central management is required by the American funding agencies as well as American research collaborating organisations. This applies both if you are a principal investigator or a partner. Hence, as a sole researcher you will not be able to submit an application or a project report without central support.

Please contact Research Services no later than 10 days before the deadline of you application or report. Please also make sure to gain approval from your Head of Department in advance. 

Some American federal funding agencies:

National Institutes of Health (NIH) 

NIH comprises 27 institutes and centers. It finances researchers within universities and research institutions both within the USA and in the rest of the world.
