Funding Opportunities

There is an increasing need for private, non-government philanthropic support to sustain our research, healthcare, and teaching missions. Recognizing this, our office has created a bi-weekly digest summarizing upcoming private funding opportunities which is distributed internally by email to UMass Medical students, post-doctorates, faculty and staff.
