Are you getting too many emails from GRANTfinder?

GRANTfinder is a funding database that all University staff can have access to. It holds information about a wide range of funding opportunities, from local to national schemes. This makes it a great place to start if you’re in the early stages of planning a project and would like to explore the kind of funds that are on offer or if you’re looking for the most suitable funder to submit a proposal to.

However, we’re aware that GRANTfinder can be a little, shall we say, enthusiastic, about the amount of emails it sends you. The default setting for GRANTfinder is for you to receive emails about all new funds and upcoming deadlines. However, this can be easily changed with just a few clicks!
