Databases

SciVal Funding
http://www.funding.scival.com.proxy2.cl.msu.edu/home

Provides access to a searchable database of more than 12,000 active opportunities, 2.25M awards (back to 2004), and 4500 funding bodies. Geographic coverage is strongest for the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, European Commission, Australia, Ireland, Singapore, India, South Africa, and New Zealand. At present academic discipline coverage is strongest in the sciences and business; hopefully it will beef up funding information in the arts, humanities, and social sciences as time goes by.

This facility should help you find those MSU scholarships for which you might be eligible.

FastWeb
http://www.fastweb.com/.
If you have access to the world wide web and are willing to fill in the online forms, this service promises a free customized list of financial aid sources. FastWeb is actually a searchable database of more than 400,000 private sector scholarships, fellowships, grants, and loans from more than 3,000 sources for all levels of higher education. First-time visitors have to register (first and last name and a user ID), then complete a profile, including background and fields of study. Registrants then receive a list of all currently relevant funding sources. The registration information is stored and can be used on subsequent visits. The entire sign-up process, and delivery of available funding sources, can be a bit tedious: about five to twenty minutes, depending on the connection speed. Approximately 500 new scholarships are added to the database daily, so registrants can stay current. Provided courtesy of Financial Aid Information Page and Student Services, Inc. created by Mark Kantrowitz and sponsored by the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators.
