External Funding & Recognition

The Office of Research, Innovation, and Economic Development disseminates funding opportunities to the UT community based on research interest, expertise, and eligibility. Faculty and staff interested in receiving regular funding updates can subscribe to the weekly Funding Opportunities Digest or the bi-weekly Arts and Design Opportunities Digest.

Faculty, staff and students are also encouraged to sign up for Pivot. This funding opportunities database includes federal, non-federal, foundation, and private opportunities, both domestic and international, and represents the full range of academic disciplines and funding types. Individuals can create an account using their UT email address and are encouraged to contact Hannah Schmidt at hschmidt@utk.edu for any questions about finding relevant funding opportunities.

ORIED maintains a list of Prestigious Fellowships and Awards for faculty interested in pursuing them and a list of Funding Opportunities for Post Docs and Graduate Students.
