Email Newsletters and Listservs

While most of these email newsletters will not generate more than one message per week, it is a good idea to set your email client to direct such bulk messages to a folder so that they do not clog your inbox.

  • GrantsNet Express offers a weekly email alert about "science funding opportunities from government agencies, private foundations, and not-for-profit organizations." Off-campus users may have to enter their Trinity ID in order to access the site.
  • H-Net provides an email newsletter of funding opportunities in the social sciences and humanities. Subscription to the email newsletters is free. However, users are asked to make a donation.
  • The Foundation Center sends out a weekly RFP Bulletin to subscribers. This email bulletin is "a roundup of recently announced Requests for Proposals (RFPs) from private, corporate, and government funding sources." Specific email summaries are available for funding in Arts, Education and Health.
  • The Arts Deadlines List contains announcements about art contests and competitions, art jobs and internships, art scholarships and grants and fellowships, art festivals, call for entries/proposals/projects, and other opportunities. There is a free and "premium" version of the newsletter.
