Grant Opportunities

I receive lots of emails about grant opportunities and contests. I don’t know why I haven’t before, but I’m planning on making more of an effort to post them on here, starting with the Six Points Fellowship below. Good luck everyone!

If there is an opportunity you’d like me to post, please email me at with “Stone Thrower” int he subject line.
