Benefits of External Funding
External funding promotes the mission of SFA, provides more opportunities for student learning through research and project activities, and helps faculty to accomplish professional goals for tenure and promotion.

How to Find External Funding
Locating funding and matching your project ideas to a funding agency's needs can be a challenge. There are a variety of online publications, searchable databases, and funding notice listservs that can be useful in a grant opportunity search.
