Navigating your Search Results

Whether you conduct a Quick search or an Advanced Search, your funding opps results are displayed in a variety of ways to help you best locate the funding opportunities relevant to your needs.

After conducting your search, your results are displayed like the example below. The search results page is separated into two areas – the main search results, and on the left side of the page, the faceted search results.  The main list of results is a list of funding opportunities available based on your search query in the main viewing pane of the page. These results are initially displayed by relevancy. The faceted search results give you a view into your overall results organized by category (Recently Added, Submission Type, Top Funding Types, Top Sponsor Types, Top Requirements, and Top Keywords) which identifies those search results that are most heavily represented.

Each row represents one funding opp and displays high level information about each opp: Title, Sponsor, Deadline, and Amount. Near the top left of the main results list you’ll see the total number of results, with each page showing 25 of the opps. At the bottom right of the page you can use the page numbers, or the “next,” “previous,” and “last” options to page through your results.
Click on the Opp title to see the full opportunity.
