The online databases listed below will assist you in finding competitive awards sponsored by national agencies such as private foundations and government offices. Indiana University subscribes to the first two on the list (PIVOT and Grant Forward) and you will need a valid IU username to create an account to conduct searches in their databases. The third database (GRAPES) does not require a subscription. The last in the list (Foundation Center) is more restrictive and access to it is described below.
Students seeking funding for attending IU should visit the IU Office of Scholarships. Funding for study abroad at the Office of Overseas Study. Additional resources are described in slides 4-7 of the Powerpoint presentation on the General Advice and FAQ page.
For assistance finding awards and using the databases, students can make an appointment by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. IUCARE will also be holding workshops during the spring months that will be listed on the calendar of events and deadlines by the end of January.
