Library Guide to Academic Publishing: Research Funding

Research funding information: Library

The Walden Library provides access to a funding database, Pivot (Formerly COS Pivot). Pivot states that it provides researchers the edge to bring together the right research opportunities, grant funding, and people quickly and easily. It provides global and local connections that strengthen research by exploring new avenues for funding and collaboration for faculty, staff researchers, and graduate students.

Research funding information: Office of Research and Doctoral Services

The Office of Research and Doctoral Services provides information about internal and external funding on their website.

Research funding information: Online sources

A variety of online grant information sites exist, some with free access and some with paid only access. You will want to carefully evaluate these websites. Often you can take the grant information you find and track it back to the original grant source. For example, if you find a potential grant through a private foundation, you would want to search out that foundation's website to make sure the information about the grant is accurate and up-to-date.

These are a few non-subscription websites with grant information.

Note: The Walden University Library does not specifically endorse or recommend any particular grant website over other available options.

The Grants.Gov website centralizes more than 1,000 different grant programs across United States federal grant-making agencies. It standardizes grant information, application packages and processes for finding and applying for federal grants.

Mendeley Funding pulls together funding opportunities internationally, including calls for proposals from organisations such as the European Union, government departments in the United States like the National Institutes of Health, UK Research councils, and many more.
