The library provides resources for discovery of funding sources. We have two databases that focus on grant opportunities.

SciVal Funding – Despite its name, SciVal Funding covers grants in all disciplines. U.S. funders include the National Endowment for the Humanities, Pew Charitable Trusts, and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, as well as the NIH, DoD, and DoE. Funders from Australia, Canada, the European Commission, India, Ireland, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa, and the United Kingdom are covered as well.
