The Discovery Grants Program supports ongoing programs of research with long-term goals rather than a single short-term project or collection of projects. These grants recognize the creativity and innovation that are at the heart of all research advances. Discovery Grants are considered “grants in aid” of research, as they provide long term operating funds and can facilitate access to funding from other programs, but are not meant to support the full costs of a research program.

Applications must be submitted to the Office of Research a minimum of 5 business days in advance of the agency deadline along with the completed and signed Grant and Contract Form. Applications can be submitted to the Office of Research via Romeo or as a hardcopy.
