FSU subscribes to the GrantForward funding database, which provides faculty, students and staff at Florida State University access to funding opportunities daily. It accompanies Pivot/Community of Science (search tool below), which was previously our only funding search tool.
- The structure was developed by a faculty researcher at the University of Illinois and is very intuitive. The underlying technology can crawl and transform unstructured HTML content into structured databases, including content hidden in deep Web sources.
- It features funding opportunities from federal and state agencies, academic/professional societies and associations, and foundations, and the GrantForward database includes 6,809 foundations.
- The database does not include funding opportunities for which US university researchers (citizens and non-citizens) are not eligible. Some funding search engines have larger grant databases, but they include grants that aren't available to US university researchers.
- GrantForward can generate a basic profile from your online publications page, or you can upload your cv. Researchers can fine-tune their profiles as desired and create automated custom funding searches.
