Internal Funding Opportunities

The University of Tulsa provides significant internal funding to support and encourage research and scholarship at the university. These programs are intended to enhance the ability of TU faculty to compete for external funding for their research or creative work, and/or lead to publication or juried exhibition. Internally funded programs also provide opportunities for students to become involved in research or creative projects under the guidance of faculty mentors and to make presentations at professional meetings.
