Show Me the Money
This workshop will focus on electronic resources that can be used to search for grants from private foundations, government agencies, and other organizations. We will discuss and demonstrate the various web-based funding opportunities databases currently available, how to develop search strategies, and how to establish email alerts for new grant announcements. This workshop will also give an overview to individuals and offices at VCU that can assist them in locating grant opportunities. This session is designed primarily for researchers who are new to the grant seeking process.
