The Division of Research Program Development assists University of Florida faculty and staff in the pursuit of internal and external research funding. The division identifies and publishes a list of Funding Opportunities for the UF community, coordinates the selection of UF’s nominees to limited application programs, and coordinates the annual Research Opportunity Seed Fund program. In addition, the division assists in planning and coordinating large interdisciplinary research initiatives, including facilitating the preparation of grants involving multiple schools, colleges, divisions, or institutions to support new research programs at UF.
