Good news about BreakOut

BreakOut is a searchable database of 2200 awards, scholarships and grants for artists, students, researchers, sports people and those wanting professional development opportunities. Located on the Funding Information Service website, the database will give you the best matches to suit your needs, along with closing dates, application requirements and contact details.

You have to pay a fee or annual subscription to access this database from the Funding Information Service website. However, the good news is that every region has public libraries or other organisations where you can use BreakOut free of charge. Click here to view the locations.
