Grants to Individuals Online database—a little known source and $1,000 Active Life Scholarship, Deadline: May 31, 2017 and Two More Scholarships

Grants to Individuals Online database

There is a little known resource called Grants to Individual Online database, accessible to students and others through Funding Information Network Locations.

If you happen to be in Nashville, TN, this summer, then the Nashville Public Library at 615 Church St, Nashville, TN 37219,Phone: (615) 862-5800 is one of those locations.

By putting in your zip code at the website at the above link, you can find libraries or places you can go to access this database.

Have the librarians teach you everything that  the Grants to Individual Online database has available.

http://gtionline.foundationcenter.org/–This is the official page to look once you get to one of those libraries. I believe if one of these libraries aren’t close to you, it costs about $20 to access for one month.
