Princeton University manages more than $300M of sponsored research funding annually. Most of the University’s research funding comes from federal agencies, with companies, foundations, and other private entities becoming increasingly important sources of support. Numerous resources are available to help members of the University research community identify funding opportunities and develop proposals to funding agencies.
