Research Funding and Grants Guide

Provides resources on finding funding and grants.

Spotlight: Artificial Intelligence for Grantwriting and Reviewing

Grant funders, publishers, journals, and professional societies are starting to develop policies regarding the appropriate use of AI and machine learning. This is an emerging topic, and it’s important to be familiar with the strengths and limitations of these tools.

While there are a growing number of funding opportunities and interest in publishing research on AI, carefully check for any policies that might affect your expected uses and reach out to funders and publishers as needed.


The U-M Generative Artificial Intelligence Advisory (GAIA) Committee published a report with guidance on these topics.
