Published: June 26, 2012
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Researchers in science and technology, health care, undergraduate studies, social sciences, mathematics and other fields may discover funding opportunities for projects and programs in the newest edition of a grant directory with more than 6,000 records.
Schoolhouse Partners LLC has published the 35th edition of Directory of Research Grants, which includes information on funding opportunities for basic research, building construction and renovation, equipment acquisition, fellowships and other programs. Schoolhouse Partners is based in the Purdue Research Park of West Lafayette.
Louis S. Schafer, editorial director, said the grant opportunities come from U.S. and foreign foundations, corporations, government agencies and other organizations.
"We included grant opportunities from a comprehensive variety of sources, which may help researchers whose programs and projects appeal to specialized populations," he said. "The information in each record can help researchers select which sources are the most likely to fund their projects and programs, which may lead to better results for all parties."
Each record includes sponsor name; grant title; description; requirements; amount of funding; application deadline; contact information, including phone, fax, email, Internet address and physical address; and samples of awarded grants, when available. The grant opportunities are organized in three indexes - geography, program type and subject.
Schafer said the grant information also is online.
"All entries have been placed on GrantSelect, a subscription-based online database that includes information from all seven Schoolhouse Partners print directories," he said. "My colleagues and I have updated GrantSelect to provide more relevant search results, and users can choose either to conduct a tight search with a narrow set of results or a wide search with broader results."
Directory of Research Grants can be ordered directly through Schoolhouse Partners, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, EBSCO Information Services, Ingram Books and YBP Library Services.
