The Web has made the task of researching potential sponsors much easier, but old-fashioned methods are still some of the best ways to uncover good leads. Use a mix of the old and new for best effect:
- NEW: Review the sponsors listed on this Web site on the Internal and External Funding Sources pages and in the funding newsletter News, Notes, and Deadlines, e-mailed monthly during the academic year to Mary Baldwin faculty.
- OLD: Check with your professional organizations and successful colleagues to find out about small grants programs.
- NEW: Register to receive electronic notices from federal agencies automatically through grants.gov.
- OLD: Call or e-mail program officers to ask them about the programs they supervise and also about other programs they know of.
You may find it helpful to fill out a Sponsor Evaluation Form (MSWord) for your best possibilities.
