Our Mission

To be the leading provider of federal grants intelligence for for small and mid-sized colleges and universities in the United States.

With thousands of federal grant competitions held annually, it can be difficult and time consuming to filter through and identify the right opportunities for your institution. GIS provides the personalized support you need to quickly identify and vet federal funding opportunities that are the right fit for your school. GIS does this by leveraging its library of grants intelligence to provide members with a personalized grants dashboard that includes information on competition updates and current grant templates and resources.

GIS is the only higher education subscription service created specifically to help small and mid-sized colleges and universities navigate and identify federal funding opportunities. GIS specializes in providing grant opportunities that are a good fit for small
and mid-sized colleges and universities, reducing the time needed to search and filter though agency websites and abstracts. Membership provides access to resources, templates, and personalized grants notifications to assist schools with limited grant office and grant writing support. The platform makes it easy for schools to keep track of relevant competitions while also providing access to billions of dollars in federal funding that can support your institution’s bottom line.

Unlike other funding subscription services, GIS provides centralized access to the federal grants intelligence that is most relevant for small and mid-sized colleges and universities. All GIS members have access to an experienced GIS
Grants Advisor to review, identify, and clarify funding opportunities in the GIS library to support your institution’s strategic goals and funding priorities.
