The Grants Resource Center serves as a liaison to federal funding agencies, provides monthly electronic announcements of forthcoming deadlines and grant opportunities, and provides personal assistance in identifying funding sources or obtaining information from federal agencies. Faculty and staff have access to GRC’s website, which contains electronic versions of GRC Deadlines and GRC Reports, the GRC Bulletin, Federal Register announcements, federal agency and private foundation links, and a searchable grant database (GrantSearch). GrantSearch is accessible only through the use of a unique username and password. To access the funding database and other GRC information, please enter your MyGeorgiaSouthern login credentials.
