Find funding opportunities using funding databases and websites. Tips for finding funding:

  • Start early and be mindful of the deadline
  • Click through to the website of the opportunity for the most up-to-date information
  • Look to see who and what has been successful in winning the award previously
  • Evaluate if the amount of the award is worth the time it will take to apply
