Federal Funding Programs

Agencies of the federal government are a primary source of external funds to support university research. The National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, and Department of Energy account for the majority of federal research dollars that are expended at LSU. All agencies announce their program opportunities through Grants.gov, a searchable database and website for the management of federal grants and extramural programs.
