Dec/Jan 2003Vol. 3, No. 10Foundation Center/Grantsmanship Center Offer Resources for Funding Information, Training
Grantseekers now have more resources to assist them in their search for funding opportunities. While, the Foundation Center and The Grantsmanship Center offer a wide range of training and grant-related information for all levels of users; they are particularly helpful to the novice. In addition to the grantwriting workshops offered by The Grantsmanship Center, their website also contains grant announcements; you'll find a summary and a link to full-text announcements in the Federal Register.
The Foundation Center has a series of free tutorials in its Virtual Classroom. Their online librarian provides an indexed set of frequently asked questions. There are free and fee-based trainings at their library field offices in Atlanta, Cleveland, New York, San Francisco, and Washington, DC. The Foundation Center has a "Cooperating Collection" of 220 libraries that have a core collection of The Foundation Center's print and electronic resources.
