Much of IBER's grant-getting experience has been with the National Science Foundation, and particularly the programs within the Social, Behavioral, and Economic Research area. IBER also has significant experience with the National Institutes of Health, Mental Health, and the Environmental Protection Agency. In addition to these government agencies, we have dealt with various private foundations and systemwide programs sponsored by the UC Office of the President.
