COS Funding Opportunities
The University of Denver provides access to COS Funding Opportunities, a database of funding opportunities that contains up-to-date information about grants, awards, fellowships, and other funding opportunities. As members of the DU community, you can register…
…and then create and save funding searches. You can have your saved searches run on a weekly basis and notificaitons emailed to you:
To set up your saved searches, we recommend you start with the “Search Wizard,” which takes you step-by-step through the process.
As you gain more experience, you will want to explore the advanced search features. You can create a variety of searches to provide you with information on funding opportunities for several interests you may have.
We also have access to the COS Funding Opportunities database available via the CSA search interface. This access does not allow you to customize your profile nor to have notifications of new funding opportunities emailed to you.
Penrose Library subscribes to another source of information about grants, the Foundation Directory. Click on the “Search Grantmakers” tab to search for available grants. If you click on the “Search Grants” tab, you will see who has been awarded grants, not which grants are available!
This database can be tricky to search. Take advantage of the online tutorials and guided tours to learn about effective search techniques.
