David Rothman recently mentioned a great new resource you can monitor to learn about new grant opportunities in the health sciences: ScanGrants. ScanGrants is a new, free public service of the Center for Health Research and Quality at Samaritan Health Services, a nonprofit network of Oregon hospitals, physicians and senior care facilities.
The About page describes ScanGrants as follows:
ScanGrants is designed to facilitate the search for funding sources to enhance individual and community health. The funding sources listed here may be of interest to virtually anyone associated with the health field “medical researchers, social workers, nurses, students, community-based health educators, academics and others.
Funding sources most frequently listed here include those of private foundations, corporations, businesses, and not-for profit organizations. Finding and listing less traditional funding opportunities is also a priority. Federal and state funding sources are typically not included on ScanGrants because they are readily available on other sites (e.g. www.grants.gov).
ScanGrants was developed as a tool for Samaritan Health Services and its collaborators, but it is also available for use by the general public. The listing is selective and is intended to supplement other search methods. In many instances, grant announcements have been abbreviated for the sake of brevity. To view the full grant announcement, click on the link to the source URL provided for each funding opportunity.
At ScanGrants, you can subscribe to all grant listings or just those in a particular category or categories (including Informatics, Medical Libraries, and Public Health) — and receive those updates via email or via RSS. Thanks to SHS-CHRQ and developer Hope Leman for such a helpful resource!
