Finding Funding

Faculty and Staff  |  Students  |  Additional Opportunities and Resources

At the Office of the Vice Provost for Research, we encourage researchers to apply for funding, participate in workshops, and engage in the research process at every stage.

This is not a complete list of opportunities. For more comprehensive funding opportunity searches visit (for government funding agencies), or GrantForward (database available through the library's Funding & Grants: Information Resources page). And the Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations (CFR) maintains a comprehensive list of funding opportunity databases available to Brandeis faculty and staff, and a calendar of recurring foundation RFPs in all fields.

The Mortimer B. Zuckerman STEM Leadership Program continues to strengthen leaders in STEM fields in Israel and the US. The deadline for applications for Zuckerman STEM Leadership Postdoctoral Fellowships at Bar-Ilan University, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Hebrew University, and Tel Aviv University has been extended to March 30, 2019.

Two Brandeis PhD's have won Zuckerman STEM Leadership postdocs:

Dr. Nick Wadleigh (PhD '17 - Dmitry Kleinbock, advisor; Technion - Math)
Dr. Mathew Cordes (PhD '16 - Ruth Charney, advisor; Technion - Math)

Zuckerman postdoctoral scholars at Israeli universities will now receive a scholarship of $52,000 per academic year, for up to two years, instead of the current $50,000.

Of this amount, $44,000 is for living expenses and $8,000 is for research and travel expenses.
