As higher education in the U.S. depends more on extramural funding for its budgetary operations, hospitality and tourism educators face increasing challenges in seeking financial support beyond the confines of their institutions. This study examined extramural funding obtained by hospitality and tourism educators in U.S. universities and colleges. The findings revealed that the attempt or success in securing extramural funding is an important criterion for faculty performance evaluation and promotion. An examination of the 198 grants that 49 educators obtained during the past ten years provided a List of external funding sources through a variety of agencies. This study found that the two most important barriers to applying for extramural grants were lack of adequate time to prepare grant proposals because of heavy teaching loads or administrative duties, and Lack of information about funding opportunities.
