Federal Agency Opportunity Bank

The Federal Agency Opportunity Bank is a product of The Federal Interagency Working Group on Educational Excellence for Hispanics (FIWG). A primary goal of the FIWG is to ensure that federal investments, programs, and opportunities are effectively shared and reach the Hispanic community.


Opportunities highlighted include but are not limited to federal employment, fellowships, internships, grants/funding and peer reviewer opportunities. In addition, there is information regarding consumer and education resources, and nominations for federal advisory commissions. The list will be updated periodically.

U.S. Department of Education Upcoming Grants (ED Grant Forecasting): Programs and competitions under which the U.S. Department of Education has invited or expects to invite applications for new awards and provides actual or estimated deadline dates for the transmittal of applications under these programs. The lists are in the form of charts — organized according to ED’s principal program offices — and include programs and competitions ED has previously announced, as well as those ED plans to announce at a later date. Access the program list here.

**Note: If you are interested in applying for any upcoming grants with ED, please take the time to register with SAM at www.SAM.gov, as you must have an active account in order to submit a grant application with ED. ED recommends you register now even as you are looking for eligible grant programs so that your SAM registration is active by the time the application is published. This will allow you to focus on writing the application during the period the application is available and you are not spending a portion of that time obtaining SAM registration. Please click here to refer to the SAM tip sheet for additional information.
