Grants to Individuals
HPL provides access to Candid’s Grants to Individuals, an online database of nearly 10,000 grantmakers funding students, artists, researchers and other individual grantseekers through scholarships, grants and fellowships. Information contained about each funder includes application information, limitations on funding and financial data. The database also provides direct access to RFPs for individuals not associated with a nonprofit right on its homepage.
For more information on accessing these databases and using the HPL and Candid resources, please contact Suzy Bloom at 631-427-1565, x173 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
