A fact of life for many researchers and students in the health sciences is that they have to find grants or scholarships to help fund their research or educations. In order to make this search process somewhat easier, we invite you try our sister site, ScanGrants™.
ScanGrants™ is designed to facilitate the search for funding sources to enhance individual and community health. The funding sources listed on ScanGrants may be of interest to virtually anyone associated with the health field – medical researchers, social workers, nurses, students, community-based health educators, academics and others. They include grants, scholarships, fellowships, prizes for scientific achievement or distinguished service, travel awards to professional meetings, abstract, essay and poster awards among other sources of funding.
Funding sources most frequently listed on ScanGrants™ include those of private foundations, corporations, businesses, and not-for profit organizations. Finding and listing less traditional funding opportunities is also a priority. Federal and state funding sources are typically not included on ScanGrants™ because they are readily available on other sites (e.g., www.grants.gov).
ScanGrants is a free resource that lists funding opportunities for researchers and students at many stages of their research projects or careers. Examples include: poster awards for completed projects; travel grants that could help finance trips to meetings that would enable you to discuss with peers in your field projects you are contemplating undertaking or in the midst of; calls for nominations for science prizes you could nominate colleagues you admire for; and announcements of funding for programs for violence or disease prevention. We invite you to give ScanGrants a try.
