Research, Travel, Fellowship, and Sabbatical Support

The funding opportunities below include a variety of travel, fellowship, and sabbatical support.

Some of the funds are awarded via the institution (USM) and must be processed through RSC; others are awarded directly to an individual without institutional involvement. Please read the guidelines carefully. RSC is available to assist you with the process and to answer any questions you may have. In order to provide the most accurate and helpful information to others seeking funding, we ask that you share your experience with us if you approach a funder as an individual.
