NJ Public Television Visits Rutgers Future Scholars!



Rutgers Future Scholars is a just one example of the life-changing programs and
research that the CFR department helps support!

Find Funding Sources to Match Your Needs 

Do you have a funding need but aren’t sure about the role philanthropy can play in filling it? Do you want to reach out to a funder for support but don’t know the best way to go about it? Have you finished your submission but want someone who knows philanthropy to make sure you’re putting your best foot forward?

Whether it’s customized support for your fundraising efforts, or just a second set of eyes to go over your materials before you hit “send,” CFR is here to help.


Check out our monthly newsletter, “PhilOps,” featuring some of the biggest, most important philanthropic opportunities on the horizon, now broken into area-specific editions.


Rutgers University maintains paid subscriptions to search engines for identifying philanthropic funding for all disciplines and activities. Use them to find sources of support that match your needs.

Limited Submission Opportunities (LSOs)

Many funders request that Rutgers limit the number of applications we submit for any given RFP. These “limited submission opportunities” are carefully managed by the university typically through the Office of Research and Economic Development or the Office of the Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs. See this comprehensive list of LSO opportunities and follow the process described.

Once a candidate or candidates are selected to go forward, CFR Directors are available to work with the chosen applicants to complete their submission materials. Contact us at cfr@winants.rutgers.edu for assistance.
