College of the Pacific
The College of the Pacific is committed to promoting scholarship, including research and artistic activity, for our faculty and students. To support such activities, the College's Director of Research Initiatives & Strategic Partnerships is available to help students and faculty in the College access grants and other funding sources.
The Director will assist you in:
- Identifying appropriate avenues of funding to support faculty scholarship, undergraduate research, and experiential learning opportunities.
- Understanding the grants process at Pacific.
- Accessing forms for grant development and management.
- Finding resources useful to your discipline.
Funding for research projects is available through a number of external sources, including corporations and foundations, and local, state and federal grant programs. Faculty can also apply for various internal funding sources, such as the Pacific Fund.
The Internal Funding Sources Guide is a handy reference of funds available to faculty and undergraduate students through the University of the Pacific. You can also learn about internal and external funding sources through these pages on the University's Office of Research and Graduate Studies website:
