Research, scholarship, and creative activities are key components of a faculty member's professional academic experience. Faculty at Ball State have diverse backgrounds in research topics ranging from accounting to zoology. Our faculty have received accolades from all over the world for their engaging research. To help your research endeavors, we have databases that will help you find new and exciting opportunities. The Sponsored Projects Administration is one way you can use to find research opportunities, funding for projects, training and education, and more.

If your research project can benefit people locally and afar, you can seek funding through the Ball State Innovation Corporation. The corporation seeks to bring inventions and ideas of the Ball State community to the public.
