What gets funded?
Databases and listings of projects that have been awarded grants / funding can help you in a number of ways:
- by giving you a clear idea of what different agencies look for when awarding funding: what topics, methods, credentials, etc. are of interest and stand a good chance of success.
- by giving you examples of projects that did not receive funding from that agency
- by preventing you from reproducing or overlapping an existing project.
- by alerting you to granting agencies or organizations that you were not previously aware of.
We have listed some places you can find funding decisions below. If there are specific funding agencies that you are thinking of, you can also explore their website - often there will be information about the projects they have funded and the impact those projects have made.
