Funding Sources and Searches
Sponsored project funding can come from a range of external sources, such as government agencies, businesses, and nonprofit organizations or foundations. Sponsors make their funding interests known through solicitations that announce availability of funding to support projects within specific areas of interest.
Wilkes University also provides modest funding for faculty projects through the Faculty Development Committee and the Mentoring Committee.
