Welcome to the GrantForward Funding Opportunity!

Rhode Island College, through the Office of Sponsored Programs, has subscribed to the GrantForward Funding Opportunity Search and Recommendation service, which is open to all members of our institution. We invite you to sign up to GrantForward and expand your knowledge and awareness of funding opportunities.

GrantForward (see quick overview video) helps you find grant opportunities that suit your research needs with 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.  GrantForward also recommends grants to you based on your CV, past publications, and research interests.

You can access GrantForward immediately at Direct access from the Office of Sponsored Programs webpage will be forthcoming. In order to be able to use full search features including saved-search and personalized grant recommendations, please sign up (see quick demo) for a user account using your RIC email address. We also encourage you to take a few minutes to create your “Researcher Profile” (see quick demo) to start receiving grant recommendations!

Attached is a Researcher Welcome Guide so you can quickly get started using GrantForward. There are also additional tutorials and guides on the GrantForward Support page, or view the video tutorials at the GrantForward YouTube Channel.

If you have any questions about the service, either contact directly, or call OSP at 456-8228 and we will be happy to assist you.​
