ONR FOA Database

The Funding Opportunity Announcements Database will now be powered by Grant Forward. This will allow the ONR to disseminate grants targeting relevant researchers, and connect them into collaboration networks across all Emory Units.

As we move forward with this new initiative, we have created and activated Grant Forward accounts for all SON Faculty. All have been sent a Welcome Message from the Grant Forward team. Please contact Jessica Abrams to schedule a demonstration or to ask any questions.

Grant Forward

GrantForward uses specialized data-crawling technology to constantly update our extensive database of sponsors and funding opportunities, allowing thousands of grant opportunities to be gathered from over 9,000 US Sponsors. Every grant opportunity is thoroughly analyzed and then verified by our team of specialists to ensure accuracy.
