Did you know that there is a fantastic Grants Information Collection for you to use, right inside of Memorial Library (just on the 2nd floor!)? The Grants Information Collection even holds workshops for various audiences: undergraduate students, graduate students, community members, and anyone involved or who plans to be involved with nonprofit organizations.

Listed below are the last workshops of this semester, all taking place in November. If you can’t make one of these, there will be a whole new set of workshops for the Spring semester! Follow the Grants Workshop Schedule page for updated information. The Grants Librarian, Ellen Jacks, can also meet with you through an appointment!
