Online grant search tool available

The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research subscribes to a grant search database that faculty, staff and students can use to search for external funding opportunities. “Grant Forward” links users to more than 14,000 funding opportunities in the Arts, Education, Sciences, Engineering, Law, and many more fields. Searching is easy from campus or home. In addition to being able to set up alerts based on individualized criteria, Grant Forward infers and aggregates research interests from several sources such as a researcher's CV, or publication history and matches the profile with relevant funding opportunities. To register for Grant Forward, start with this link: grantforward.com/index. For help, or if you have questions, contact OSPA at ospa@siu.edu, or 453-4540.
