As a research intensive institution of graduate education, the Doha Institute for Graduate Studies (DI) is fully committed to enhancing the research capacity and productivity of its faculty and student body. The DI thus supports its researchers' funding needs through a variety of sources.

Internal research funding is offered through a number of channels. The Faculty Research Fund (FRF) supports the research needs of core faculty and post-doctoral fellows whose contracts stipulate research as one of their duties. The Major Research Fund (MRF) awards grants on a competitive basis for small to medium sized research projects. The faculty are also actively encouraged to apply for extramural funding for large multi-year research endeavors.
