Looking for the right grant is like a needle in a haystack. You might find something interesting only to discover you don’t qualify to even apply.
Signing up for email lists is a great option to learn about grant opportunities in your field. But what else can you do? If you are looking for nonprofit grants or other types of grants, this information is all you need to get started.

Check out this clip from the training where I explain why this is important for your research during your online grant writing.
So what are the 10 search terms? Here you go! I’m sharing them for free so you can refer back to them any time you need to update your grant search.

Google is Your Friend
As I explained in the webinar, searching for grants requires you to put in effort and time. The 10 search terms above are not an all-inclusive list that guarantees you will find a grant you qualify for.
Rather, this is a list of search terms for you to use as a starting point to inspire your research. Once you have found a set of search terms that work for your niche/cause, write those terms down and repeat your search once a quarter.
