I believe that it is extremely beneficial to choose a research topic that is of personal interest to the researcher. Being invested in a topic not only makes the research process more enjoyable, but it also fosters a result that is more meaningful because the work was completed with genuine curiosity and purpose.

The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs assists Marywood University faculty, staff, and students as they work to identify internal and external funding sources for research based programs or projects.
Internal Funding Opportunities
Several types of internal funding opportunities are available to faculty and graduate students through Marywood University's Internal Funding program. Please submit all requests for internal funding electronically to Dr. Laura Ann Camlet Houser at email@example.com.
External Funding Opportunities
SPIN is a web-based search tool that helps to locate current external funding opportunities and may be accessed while on campus. Creation of an individual (free) account will allow the researcher access to SPIN wherever there is Internet access. SPIN's features include key word customized and saved searches as well as updates and approaching deadlines for specific funding opportunities. Email Kristie Congdon (firstname.lastname@example.org) to request SPIN account login information and let the ORSP help start your external funding search.
