Managing Data Sets: Finding Funding

Office of Research and Sponsored Programs

The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (RSP) assists faculty and staff at Pepperdine in the pursuit of external funding for scholarly and creative projects. RSP works with potential project directors on every step of the proposal process including program development, identifying funding opportunities, proposal writing, budget preparation, review and routing for signatures, submission, and post-award administration.

In support of Pepperdine’s research agenda, the University provides faculty with a premium service—access to InfoEd, the largest international funding opportunity database.  InfoEd tracks the funding programs (e.g. research grants, fellowships, publication support, sabbatical support, curriculum development, etc.) of over 6,000 government, private, and non-profit funding sources worldwide.
