Welcome to the National Charter School Resource Center (NCSRC) funding opportunity database. The database includes one-time and ongoing national grants, fellowships, and scholarships that are currently active. Sponsors include the U.S. Federal Government and philanthropic organizations. This page is updated frequently as charter school funding opportunities are announced. Funding opportunities are displayed below in order of due date, i.e., opportunities with the most imminent deadlines are listed first and alphabetically within the same due date range.

Please note that state-specific and currently inactive funding opportunities are excluded from this database. For information about state-specific funding opportunities, please visit State Resources for Charter Schools on the NCSRC website to contact your State Education Agency and, if applicable, your state’s Charter Support Organization.
