Boston University Sargent College actively encourages its faculty and students to pursue external funding sources for research and training activities. The College believes that external funding provides unique opportunities to advance and expand our mission.

Internal funding opportunities for doctoral students, post-doctoral fellows, and faculty are available through the Dudley Allen Sargent Research Fund.

In addition to Boston University’s centralized resources, Sargent College has dedicated research administrators to assist faculty with all aspects of the grant process, from pre-application concerns to post-award administration.
