Two free online resources can help medical researchers and students, residents, graduate students, nurses and other healthcare professionals find funding and publishing opportunities.
ScanGrants™ lists grant announcements and funding sources offered by foundations, corporations, businesses, and not-for-profits. It is a good supplement to sites such as www.grants.gov, which lists state and federal funding sources.
ScanGrants™ also includes a page on fellowships that currently has well over one hundred opportunities.
Currently, nearly 700 funding opportunities are listed. For example, one recent post highlights early career awards for residents, fellows, and new post-docs to fund projects related to children’s health.
Both sites are easy to search, and you can subscribe to email alerts and RSS feeds by clinical specialty or topic. They were created by a librarian (of course!) and are operated by the Samaritan Health Services Center for Health Research and Quality.
Once you’ve found a publishing opportunity, simplify the process with these new titles at Miner…
