Looking for Money to Finance your Project?  Check Out Foundation Grants to Individuals Online

Do you want to attend the ukulele festival, but lack funds?  Although foundations don't generally offer grant money to individuals, the Foundation Center can help you find those that do. 

Funding opportunities for students, professionals, researchers and artistic types are available through the FC's Foundation Grants to Individuals Online, a database of nearly 10,000 foundation and public charity programs including:

  • Educational support – scholarships, fellowships, loans, and internships
  • Students and graduates of specific schools
  • Arts and cultural support
  • Awards, prizes, and grants by nomination
  • International applicants
  • Employees/families of employees at specific companies
  • Research and professional support

If you'd like to learn more about this resource, join us at 10:30 on July 1st in the 4th floor large computer training room for a hands-on class (no reservation required, first come, first served).  Or, check out the online tour.  Foundation Grants to Individuals is available only at the Central Library.  Call 720-865-1363 for more information.
