Learn how to find grants for individuals with the Foundation Center's online grants database.
This hands-on 60 minute introductory session to Foundation Grants to Individuals Online is for individual grantseekers looking for foundation funding.
Foundation Grants to Individuals Online is a searchable online database of nearly 10,000 foundation and public charity programs that fund students, artists, researchers, and other individual grantseekers.
