Pre-Award

Funding Opportunities


The Office of Research and Graduate Studies provides guidance and resources to assist the faculty and staff at Texas A&M University-Kingsville to find potential funding opportunities. Our mission is to seek grant opportunities for our faculty and staff to enhance proposal submissions. To accomplish that, our office can help you strategically identify  the funding resources that you need to accomplish your research/project goals.
The University is subscribed to Grants Resource Center (GRC), which offers array of resources and services to help faculty and staff in their research efforts. GRC "increases your opportunities to gain knowledge directly from program officers, successful awardees, and experienced peers." One of the most important tools GRC has is the ability to find a variety of funding opportunities. GRC has a search engine known as GrantSearch, which includes 2,000 private and federal funding opportunities. When performing searches, the results "provide a high proportion of viable opportunities because the database excludes solicitations that are limited to a specific region, that make fewer than three awards annually, and for which higher education institutions are not eligible to apply or partner."  
If you are interested in finding funding opportunities, contact our office via e-mail and we would be more than happy to set up a meeting with you to discuss possible opportunities for you.
GrantWatch is a newly paid subscription by our University. One can view all current grant applications for nonprofit grants, for-profit grants, small business grants, Federal, state, foundation, corporate giving and local grants.
A limited submission program is a funding program in which the sponsor sets an institutional limit for the number of applications or pre- and full proposals our campus can submit. Colleges will facilitate their own internal competition and forward one to three recommendations to ORGS within the prescribed timeline. Final proposal selections will be made by the Vice President of Research based on scientific merit, capacity to develop a sustainable research program, alignment with the TAMUK strategic plan, and broader impact to the university community. Please visit our Limited Submission Process page for more information.
The Office of Research & Graduate Studies at TAMUK will update our limited submission list as frequently as we can. If there are any opportunities that have limitations and are not on our list please contact us via e-mail osr@tamuk.edu, so that we can add to our list with a reasonable timeline for colleges to notify our office of their selection. With that being said, please view our list of current Limited Submission Opportunities.
Grants.gov is your source to FIND and APPLY for federal grants. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is proud to be the managing partner for Grants.gov, an initiative that is having an unparalleled impact on the grant community. Their mission is to provide a common website for federal agencies to post discretionary funding opportunities and for grantees to find and apply to them. Beneficially, utilizing the Grants.gov system makes "it faster, easier and more cost effective for grant applicants to electronically interact with federal grant-making agencies. It also provides the following key benefits, among many others, to the grant community."
Use the Texas.gov eGrants website to search for, view the details of, and find contact information for competitive funding announcements from Texas State agencies. The link to access is as follows: https://txapps.texas.gov/tolapp/egrants/search.htm
