Grants Search Engines
1. Research Professional
LAU was granted access to Research Professional, an academia’s favorite source of intelligence on funding opportunities and research policy. Faculty can access for free a database of funding opportunities in all disciplines through this link: http://info.researchprofessional.com/#/
Interested Faculty need to email Jon Thornton (firstname.lastname@example.org), Account Manager at Research, to create an access account on the existing subscription.
Research Professional allows you to search its database, save your searches, and even receive email alerts from Research Professional. These email alerts are based on searches for funding opportunities you have saved to your account. They are sent every Friday, and will contain any opportunities added to the database during the past week which match your search.
Kindly note that prior to applying for a funding opportunity, Faculty need to fill out the “Proposal Submission Approval” form and submit it to the Graduate Studies and Research Office at email@example.com.
