The Inquiry Funding Office reviews Yearlong Research and Summer Explore grants just once per academic year.  Other funds may be awarded quarterly or on a rolling basis.  Applications for funding are managed through the Labspot portal which is available exclusively to UCSF-affiliated learners.  Login to LabSpot and enroll into the program you’re interested in viewing and to get reminders about upcoming deadlines.

Submissions are accepted beginning one month prior to the due date.  Late submissions are not accepted past 12:00 pm. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Inquiry staff team for a quick response.  Inquiry Funding Faculty are also available anytime for consultations and support.
