ScanGrants™ is designed to facilitate the search for funding sources to enhance individual and community health. The funding sources listed here may be of interest to virtually anyone associated with the health field – medical researchers, social workers, nurses, students, community-based health educators, academics and others.
Funding sources most frequently listed here include those of private foundations, corporations, businesses, and not-for profit organizations. Finding and listing less traditional funding opportunities is also a priority. Federal and state funding sources are typically not included on ScanGrants™ because they are readily available on other sites (e.g. www.grants.gov).
ScanGrants™ was developed as a tool for Samaritan Health Services and its collaborators, but it is also available for use by the general public. The listing is selective and is intended to supplement other search methods. In many instances, grant announcements have been abbreviated for the sake of brevity. To view the full grant announcement, click on the link to the source URL provided for each funding opportunity.
The operator of ScanGrants™ is the SHS Center for Health Research and Quality. Samaritan Health Services, a nonprofit network of Oregon hospitals, physicians and senior care facilities that serves the needs of people in the mid-Willamette Valley and the Central Oregon Coast, established the Center for Health Research and Quality in 2008 to improve the quality of patient care and build healthier communities by advancing research and health promotion activities.
The SHS Center for Health Research and Quality is under the direction of Jana Kay Slater, PhD.
