From PsychWiki - A Collaborative Psychology Wiki
Welcome to the wonderful (and routinely frustrating) world of grant funding! Although funding is critical to our professional lives, the first think you need to know is that information about grant funding is de-centralized and sometimes hard to find. So how can PsychWiki help? The unique ability of a wiki allows us to:
- start benefiting from an accumulating compendium of grant information because anyone and everyone can add information to the webpages, and
- easily keep track of new updates and grant funding opportunities because PsychWiki allows users to receive email notifications when the webpages change (just click on the "watch" tab above, then click on "send me an email on page changes" in the preferences link at the top of the webpage. For more information see the help! page about keeping track of edits).
The purpose of this section is to help you find what you are looking for and put you on the path to successfully finding, applying, and being awarded grants. After you have ventured out into the wide world of grant funding, come back and report what you know, so that everyone can start benefiting ....
FYI - because this page is so long, try using the "edit" tabs at the right of each section if you only want to add/edit a certain section
