Resources for Grant Seekers

Grant-seeking Basics for Individuals:

4:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 26 at the Daytona Beach Library

For more information call 386-257-6036, option 4.

The library will offer a free workshop for students, artists, researchers, and other individual grant seekers seeking funds from foundations, corporations, and grantmaking public charities. This hands-on workshop will offer an opportunity to preview and use the Foundation Center’s Online database which provides information on more than 10,000 grant makers that support individual grant projects. Seating is limited; reserve a seat by calling Lorri Davis, 257-6036, ext. 16154, or email ljdavis@volusia.org.

Grant seekers can join the Office of Grants, Sponsored Research and Strategic Initiatives for grant workshops where we explain the grant seeking process, including how to read guidelines, find funding resources, and write and edit proposals.

The first step toward a university grant proposal is to read the instructions and complete the External Grant Form, created specifically for each proposal. Please call our office to have one prepared for your grant proposal.
