The Office of Sponsored Programs can assist in identifying a wide range of funding opportunities for faculty and staff to apply to within the federal government, foundations, non-profit organizations, and corporations. We consult with faculty/staff and provide ideas and strategies for the funding search process. This type of support can be provided through email, phone or in person.
In order to provide personalized funding search support, faculty/staff are asked to click and complete the following Grant Project Idea Form. Once completed, this form will enable OSP to develop specific search agents to match your project idea and to provide updates on current relevant funding opportunities and specific funding sources that might be useful in your funding search process.
The Office of Sponsored Programs utilizes eCIVIS as their grants management database and is able to use this system to support sponsored programs at Carthage. eCivis is the nation’s leading cloud-based grants management software system that incorporates the entire grant life cycle: pre-award; post-award; compliance; and training/awareness. Contact the Office of Sponsored Programs for more information on how to access and utilize eCivis.
If you want to apply for federal government grants, Grants.gov has to be your first stop. This U.S. government website has lots of useful information for nonprofits, including announcements of federal grants.
Subscription-Based Tools & Resources
Most grant and funding search databases and websites operate under a subscription model. Subscribers can establish a profile and receive information via email, based upon their preference. Many also send out electronic newsletters, funding alerts and other forms of regular communication. Some of these funding databases contain previously funded PI profiles, a useful tool for identifying potential collaborative partners. These websites offer varying types of resources based on subscription level, however most make at least a few resources accessible to non-subscribers. Check out the funding database resources below:
