WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Officials at organizations that work directly with youth and children outside formal classroom settings can find funding for educational opportunities, training, equipment and more in a newly published directory from a Purdue Research Park affiliate.

Schoolhouse Partners LLC has published the 7th edition of Funding Sources for Children and Youth Programs. It can be purchased directly from Schoolhouse Partners or through YBP Library Services, Ingram Books, EBSCO Information Services, Coutts Information Services, Barnes & Noble bookstores or Amazon.com. The information also is available on GrantSelect, Schoolhouse Partners' subscription-based online database.

Louis S. Schafer, editorial director, said grants in the directory cover a broad range of programs.

"There are more than 3,000 grant opportunities from hundreds of sponsors," he said. "These grants will fund opportunities like summer enrichment programs and camps, cultural programs, and art workshops. Some support training for youth coaches and childcare workers while others cover sports equipment."

Each record is listed in three indices: by geography, program type and subject. Records include grant title; description; requirements; award amount; application deadline; contact information including phone, fax, email and Internet address; sponsor name and address; and samples of awarded grants.

"Funding Sources for Children and Youth Programs also includes our essay 'How to Write a Winning Grant,' which can be used as a guide for preparing grant proposals," Schafer said. "The information could be helpful both to novice and experienced grant writers."
