Funding & Policy Announcements

OORHS provides the University of Pittsburgh's Health Sciences research community with up-to-date information about a wide range of funding opportunities across the full breadth of the health sciences. To this end, the OORHS maintains a comprehensive database of governmental and foundation funding opportunities for Health Sciences researchers. This database is accessible through the OORHS website (Search Funding), and may be searched by opportunity category, opportunity title, and / or opportunity text.

Included in this database are all types of research initiatives sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) including Requests for Applications (RFA), Program Announcements (PA), Program Announcements with Set-aside Funds (PAS), and Requests for Proposals (RFP). The database also includes nomination announcements for prestigious awards and honors, and foundation funding opportunities. If an extramural funding opportunity or announcement relates to the area of expertise of particular Health Sciences investigators, the OORHS will disseminate the opportunity directly to these persons.
