Grants.gov @ Dartmouth

Grants.gov is the central web-based portal created by the government under the Egrants initiative. Grants.gov replaces paper applications with electronic forms and requires electronic submission of all applications.

Currently, Grants.gov offers two main functions:

  • FIND funding opportunity announcements (FOA) by searching all federal announcements
  • APPLY for assistance by submitting your application

Dartmouth College is a registered institution with Grants.gov and with the Central Contractor Registry (CCR). Faculty and staff do not need to register with Grants.gov or CCR to use the system. Faculty do not submit their applications, the Office of Sponsored Projects (OSP) has officials who are authorized to submit proposals on behalf of the Institution through Grants.gov.

How to Get Started

Please Plan Ahead

Keep in mind, in order to guarantee timely submission of your application, OSP needs to receive your application 7 working days before the sponsor deadline. Please refer to OSP Deadline Policy for further guidance.

Agency Specific Grants.gov Information

While Grants.gov provides a common portal to apply for federal assistance, agencies may have specific guidelines and forms adapted to their particular needs. Once you have identified your funding source, please consult the agency specific Grants.gov instructions in our Agency Listing (i.e., NIH, NSF, etc.). We have also included each implementation schedule when available.
