BC GrantScape - A New Database to Identify Private Funding
The Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations introduced BC GrantScape, a searchable on-line database of faculty and post-doc funding opportunities for the Boston College community. This session demonstrated how GrantScape can help you maximize your research funding by providing you with pre-screened, targeted and timely information about deadline-driven corporate and foundation funding opportunities.
In GrantScape, you can search with different criteria, browse a year-long calendar of deadlines, save and share opportunities, see who at BC has received awards from funders, subscribe to RFP Bulletins and Customized Funding Alerts, and link to other BC funding resources.
Ginger Saariaho and Kathy Kuy presented the website, demonstrated its functionality, and provided information about navigating the corporate and foundation funding arena.
