Research project grants (RPGs) are awards made for investigator-initiated research proposals and/or in response to a funding announcement or program announcement. Several types of awards are made in this category, including those in the R (single-grant), P (multi-project grant), and U (cooperative agreement) series. RPGs are awarded to organizations of all types, including universities, colleges, small businesses, for-profit, foreign, and domestic. Find more information on RPGs.
