NEW Limited Submissions Programs and Strategic Grants

Dear Faculty,

I hope you are continuing to enjoy your summer, and beginning to look forward to an exciting fall semester. In past editions of our Top of the Month publications, funding opportunities have been listed in chronological order by due date. You will notice a slight change in the organization of this month's edition. Funding opportunities are now organized by funding type, as well as by due date. Awards and fellowships are also included. Up-to-date information is also available anytime on our SJSU InfoReady Portal (for limited submissions) and via our SJSU Strategic Grants list within Pivot — SJSU’s go-to tool for finding funding. Past “top-of-the month” communications and our monthly AVP for Research email can be found on the Office of Research website under Communications.
