Funding Alert System

Research & Sponsored Programs staff review funding announcements from various agencies — governmental and private — on a daily basis. Using the online knowledge management tool Diigo, we share those announcements to various discipline- or topic-specific Diigo groups.  Researchers can access this information in three ways:

  • Visiting a Diigo group gives researchers just-in-time access to funding opp information.
  • Joining a Diigo group (requires set-up of a free Diigo account) allows researchers access to tools that allow them to customize automated alerts through various channels.
  • Subscribing to a Miami University listserv lets researchers receive a weekly e-mail digest of new funding opps added to their group of interest.

View our list of groups to get started.

To view funding opportunity announcements for a group, click on the "Diigo group" link to the right of the group name below. To join a Diigo group or subscribe to a listserv, follow the "How to" directions at left.
