KALAMAZOO, Mich.—WMU has entered a one-month trial with GrantForward Funding Opportunity Search and Recommendation service, which is open to all members of our institution. The trial will end on April 13. We invite you to sign up to use the service and share your feedback with us.

GrantForward offers a database of grants from over 12,000 sponsors, which is updated daily. You can search for grants by keywords and advanced filters, save your favorite searches for new grant alerts, and save your favorite grants to keep track of them.  If you create a “Researcher Profile” GrantForward also recommends grants to you based on your CV, past publications, and research interests.
