Identify Funding - Non-Profit Foundations

Faculty and staff considering foundation funding must read General Guidance for UMaine Personnel Seeking Extramural and Gift Support (Word) which outlines both the roles of the Development Office and ORSP in administering requests for foundation funding and the grant seeker’s responsibility to obtain clearance to proceed with a request.

Faculty and staff also should read University of Maine Limited and Internal Competitions Policy (PDF) which outlines the selection process followed when the number of submissions, from any one institution to a solicitation, is limited. Proposals that are not cleared for submission under either policy will not be sanctioned by the University.

For those new to the process of identifying and applying for foundation awards, ORSP offers individualized assistance on a first come, first served basis. Those interested should contact Wendy Eckert at: or (207) 581-2657. New and seasoned grant seekers, alike, are strongly encouraged to maintain current profiles in the Faculty Staff Database which may be used to match funding opportunities to research interests.
