Cornell University has a subscription to GrantForward, a funding opportunity search and recommendation service, which is open to all members of our institution. GrantForward (see quick overview video) helps you find grant opportunities that suit your research needs with a database of grants from over 14,000 sponsors which is updated daily. You can search for grants by keywords and advanced filters, save your favorite searches for new grant alerts, and save your favorite grants to keep track of them.  GrantForward also recommends grants to you based on your CV, past publications, and research interests. 

In order to use all the search features including saved-search and personalized grant recommendations, please sign up (see quick demo) for a user account using your Cornell email address.
