At Notre Dame, we understand the importance of our faculty members' work, both in and out of the classroom.


Funding for faculty projects, whether through external grants or internal initiatives, is vital to the continued excellence of our students' education.

By helping our faculty members remain at the top of their fields, we ensure that our students receive the educations they deserve.


Endowments such as the Pangborn and Faculty Research and Development funds allow us to support our faculty right here on campus, while our office of corporate, foundation, and government relations assists faculty and staff as they locate and obtain external grants to fund their research.

Internal Funding
