Add funding information to your ORCID record

Welcome to ORCID > Building your ORCID record and connecting your iD > Add funding information to your ORCID record

Add information about grants, awards, or other types of funding that you have received to support your research. Trusted organizations can also add/update this information, and we strongly encourage you to give them permission to do so (learn more about auto-updates). Look for the green iD icon next time you submit a grant. Your funder will be listed as the source of the affiliation on your record. Allowing your funder to add and update your grants means you now have easily shareable information that is authoritative and trustworthy, and saves you time when completing forms.

Add funding by importing from other systems

Under “Funding”, go to “Add funding” then “Search & link”, and select ÜberWizard. After granting authorization you will be taken to the ÜberResearch website, where you can search for grants you have received and link them to your ORCID record.

Add funding

If you are unable to locate a funding item you received via the Link funding tools, you can add it manually.

Add funding manually

Under “Funding”, go to “Add funding” then “Add manually”. You will 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.
