Funding Subscriptions

The Project Support Office subscribe to a number of funding databases and organisations in order to be able to effectively support bidding activity.

If you would like us to search for funding for you, please do not hesitate to get in touch with the Project Support Office Team by contacting us on or 01902 323864.

As a University, we subscribe to some online resources where all staff can set up accounts. You can subscribe to the websites below to search funding opportunities and policy news and, to set up alerts which are customised to your needs.

Research Professional and Funding Insight

The University of Wolverhampton has an institutional subscription to Research Professional which is a large searchable research funding database covering a broad range of disciplines and a new service, Funding Insight. Funding Insight contains useful resources to support bid development including 'know how' guides and interviews with successful bidders and those who will be assessing submissions. In addition to providing searchable funding opportunities, registered users can subscribe to receive regular newsletters and ‘funding alerts’ covering issues affecting the international research community.

You can access the website from on a University Campus without registering but will not be able to customise and save information.

You can register via the Research Professional website
