Funding Resources

folders that say funding and grants

Opportunities listed below include internal CWRU based and external private and selected government based funding sources.

Funding Agencies often require detailed language about the computational resources that will be used as part of a research project. To facilitate the application process, RCCI has created Proposal Templates detailing the design and capabilities of resources such as the High Performance Computing Cluster. Those documents can be found HERE.

If you are planning to apply for external funding, we encourage you to contact RCCI at

  • Funding Agencies - Funding agencies have specific requirements regarding a research project’s data management plan and the way in which research products will be archived and made accessible. While RCCI can assist researchers in navigating this information, we encourage you to review agency-specific documentation below.
