An excellent on-going resource of information about public and private grant/contract opportunities is the Funding Alert Newsletter from the Duke University Office of Research Support. This searchable database lists current grant opportunities for faculty in the humanities and social sciences, staff, postdoctoral fellows, graduate and professional students, and for institutional and community needs. Updated every Sunday, it is based on
news from: Commerce Business Daily, Federal Register, NIH Guide, The Blue Sheet, NSF’s Document Online, The Chronicle of Higher Education, The Chronicle of Philanthropy, Science, Washington Fax, various funding opportunity newsletters, and program announcements. A related monthly Grant Deadlines newsletter provides a list of upcoming funding deadlines.
Grants.gov allows organizations to electronically find and apply for competitive grant opportunities from all Federal grant-making agencies. Grants.gov is the single access point for over 900 grant programs
offered by the 26 Federal grant-making agencies. The US Department of
Health and Human Services is a managing partner for Grants.gov.
The Foundation Center’s base of the largest 10,000 foundations can be accessed by desktop, starting at only $19.95 per month. To find out more, visit: http://www.fconline.fdncenter.org/
