External Funding Sources

International Funding Sources

Faculty are encouraged to seek funding from outside funding bodies. In the past, faculty members have received funding in the form of fellowships and grants from Harvard University, Princeton University, Dartmouth College, the University of Texas at Austin, the U.K.’s Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), and the Private Enterprise Development for Low Income Countries (PEDL) Initiative at the U.K.’s Centre for Economic Policy Research, among others.


Pivot combines the most comprehensive, editorially maintained database of funding opportunities with a database of pre-populated scholar profiles. Its proprietary algorithm compiles pre-populated researcher profiles unique to AU and matches them to current funding opportunities in the COS database. This allows users to search for a funding opportunity and instantly view matching faculty from inside or outside the University. Conversely, a search for a scholar will link to matching funding opportunities.
