COVID-19 External Research Funding Opportunities

Funding agencies across the country and abroad are making funding available to conduct both medical and non-medical research that can be used to explore ways to model and understand the spread of COVID-19, to inform and educate about the science of virus transmission and prevention, and to encourage the development of processes and actions to address this global challenge. Many agencies are already accepting proposals.

USF Research & Innovation encourages USF researchers to pursue these funding opportunities and stands ready to assist with the development and submission of funding proposals for this important research. If you are interested in any of these funding opportunities, or to begin the process of submitting a funding proposal, please contact your assigned Sponsored Research Administrator (PDF).

In an effort to collect, organize, and disseminate information about these opportunities as they become available, USF Research & Innovation has developed this webpage with information about COVID-19 related research funding opportunities that is available online. We will continue to update this webpage as new funding opportunities become available.
