Do Your Own Search
GRC GrantSearch - One of the hallmarks of the Grants Resource Center is its funding database, GrantSearch, designed exclusively for GRC member campuses. It was developed to make finding federal and private foundation grant information accessible and convenient by allowing the user to search the funding opportunity database using five criteria: academic subject, activity, funding sponsor, deadline month, and text. Please email ORSP for login access to the GRC database.
For Stanislaus State faculty members, ORSP can custom tailor a funding search. If interested, please complete the Prospectus Form and one of our Contracts & Grants Specialists will contact you to discuss possible options.

The first step for any PI should always be to discuss prospective projects with the appropriate department chair and school dean to obtain school-level support before proceeding with the development of a proposal.
