There is a wide range of funding opportunities for Carnegie Mellon researchers, including: federal, non-federal, industry, foundations, foreign governments, and non-profit institutions. The Engineering Research Accelerator pre-award team assists in navigating funding opportunities and identify challenges. The team specializes in proposal preparation and submission, aiding with subcontracts, and focus in multidisciplinary and large center grants.


There are several components to effective award management, including: account monitoring, cost share reporting, subcontract management, monthly reporting, and any specialized requirements the award may have. The Engineering Research Accelerator post-award team works diligently across Carnegie Mellon’s campus to provide an array of services to meet your funding requirements and act as a liaison between all participating entities.
