Funding Landscape

Developing a data-driven approach to grant-seeking, which leverages insights gained from analyzing sponsor priorities and trends in current and projected federal funding, can help increase CU Anschutz’s competitive advantage for securing grants – from the campus and schools/college levels, to even the department/center and lab levels.


The ultimate goals of our office’s strategic intelligence efforts are to:

  • Maintain existing and create new alignments between CU Anschutz and funders.
  • Determine where to socialize our research proposals with the greatest likelihood of funding success.
  • Anticipate new funding initiatives and opportunities to grow the scope, scale and impact of our research portfolio.

Available below for view/download are selected sections from Funding Landscape Reports developed broadly for CU Anschutz. Each report includes example use cases for the information/data enclosed.


As our office continues to grow, we plan to expand our analytics branch to increase the capacity for strategic intelligence tailored for specific schools/college, departments and labs.
