Registering as an Individual

An individual is an applicant who submits grant applications on their own behalf, not representing an organization, institution or government.

ALERT: Individual applicants may only apply for grant opportunities, on Grants.gov, that indicate individual eligibility within the Synopsis and Full Announcement.

Individuals wishing to submit a grant application, using Grants.gov, are required to complete this one time registration process. Neither a Data Universal Number System (DUNS) number nor the System for Award Management (SAM, formerly CCR) registration is necessary for Individual Registration.

Get Registered as an Individual

NOTE: If you register as an individual, you will only be able to apply to grant opportunities which indicate Individual eligibility. An individual cannot submit a grant application, to a grant opportunity, that has Organization eligibility requirements.
