Event description


Due to the popularity of this event, we have added an extra date.

Whether you are a new user or have had an account for a while, come along to this workshop to get tips and advice about how to make the most of your Grantfinder4Education login.

Facilitated by Karen Lewis, Bidding Manager for the Research and Strategic Bidding Office, this session is an interactive workshop. Computers will be provided or feel free to bring along your laptop.

We will cover:-

  • Grantfinder4Education’s three different sections: Research Connect, Policyfinder and Grantfinder
  • Creating powerful searches that will find the right funding sources for you
  • How to make sure you are only getting the emails you need
  • Any other questions you may have about the system

GRANTfinder 4 Education is a database that the University of Northampton subscribes to, giving the following benefits:

  • A one-stop-shop of funding information – removing the legwork when searching for funding opportunities.
  • A holistic view of the funding landscape – thousands of funding opportunities reported to support both R&D and wider business development.
  • Updated in real time – as soon as they know about a new funding opportunity, so do we.
  • All information is presented in Plain English – ensuring that jargon and text heavy guidelines are easily accessible to users.
  • Email alerts – automatic updates on saved searches, alerting you to new or updated funds relevant to your research.
  • News alerts – approaching deadlines and new funding calls delivered directly to your inbox.
  • A regular funding bulletin, categorised by discipline, keeping you updated with research areas of interest to you.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION - please note in order to make the most of the session, you will need your Grantfinder login and password. If you have forgotten these, please click the forgotten password button at
