Aggregate sources of open funding calls

This page updates annually. Last update: January 2024

Many universities maintain open resources that aggregate funding opportunities. Examples include this page from the University of California at Berkeley, which shares federal and nonfederal opportunities for late postdoctoral investigators and new faculty, and this page from the Stanford University School of Medicine for funding opportunities in life and medical sciences. Johns Hopkins University continuously updates repositories of public and private opportunities here focused on early career researchers.

The NIH Fogarty International Center manages a directory of non-NIH funding opportunities including international grants and fellowships in biomedical, behavioral, and global health research.

Over 850 locations in the United States, mostly libraries, provide free access to Candid’s Foundation Directory and its grant search and funder profile capabilities. Search locations here.

Many universities also maintain subscriptions to the Foundation Directory and other common searchable grant databases including Pivot, Grant Forward, Grantselect and others that aggregate open requests for applications/proposals. We recommend that grant seekers check for supported tools via their university’s development office, research management groups, or library systems, and work with their universities to add tools that aren’t available. Many university development offices also maintain their own closed internal repositories.

Some paid services share open funding calls in their free newsletters. Peak Proposals has aggregated this information here, most recently updated in September 2023.

For funding opportunities from US federal agencies, explore searchable databases from, the NIH, and the NSF.
