ORCID allows scholars and students to record and share their professional activities with a global audience.

Add your funding information

In this section, you can add your information in two ways:

  • Use the Search & link feature to import your funding information from other systems, or
  • Add the information manually.

Using Search & link

  • Select +Add in the Funding section.
  • Choose Search & link from the dropdown menu.
  • Click DimensionsWizard.

The DimensionsWizard hyperlink, in the "Link funding" pop up on an ORCID profile, is highlighted in red.

  • Grant the DimensionsWizard permission to look for your funding awards and follow the instructions. You can remove permissions anytime by going to your account’s Trusted parties page and clicking Revoke access next to the name of the organization.

Authorize access to the DimensionsWizard (appropriate button is highlighted in red).

  • Review the form to ensure all auto-populated information is correct. The DimensionsWizard may not be able to source every one of your grants, so manually add any that don’t appear.


Consult this guide for further assistance.

Add information manually

  • Select +Add in the Funding section.
  • Select Add Manually from the drop down menu.
  • Add all the necessary information about the grant, including funding details, the funding agency, and funding identifiers.
