Hanover Research Solutions

UNCP has established a partnership with Hanover Research Solutions (HR)*, and as part of this partnership UNCP faculty can have access to the webinars and newsletters developed by HR to help Grant seekers navigate the funding landscape. UNCP faculty can review recent grants opportunities under Grant Alerts, or sign up to receive funding calendars and webinar invitations through Hanover Insights. Alerts are broken up into research and programmatic grant opportunities in the Higher Education and Health sectors and you can also sign up for a specialized calendar that maps out grant opportunities of interest to different types of institutions and to faculty in different focus areas.
