Using the Funding section of your ORCID record you can record awards, contracts, and grants which you have received or by which you have been supported. This section, like others on the ORCID record, is optional -- if you have not received funding or other forms of support, you do not need to enter information in this section.
When adding your funding information, you will see a visibility selector that lets you set who can see the information you enter. The options are:
- Everyone, which is information anyone who looks at your record can see
- Trusted Parties, which is only made available to organizations or individuals to whom you have specifically granted access
- Only Me, which no one but you can see
To link funding to your ORCID from another source, go to Add funding then Search & link. Currently the only link tool offered is ÜberWizard. By following the ÜberWizard link you'll grant authorization then be taken to the ÜberResearch website where you can search for grants you have received then link them into your ORCID record.
Add funding manually
If you are unable to locate a funding item you received via the Link funding tools, you can manually add it. Go to Add funding then Add manually and you'll see a form to record information about the funding award. Each funding item should correspond to one funding award, if a project was funded from multiple sources or multiple awards each funding item should be entered separately.
The fields for adding information about funding are:
