Categories over a field $k$ can be graded by di erent groups in a connected way; we consider morphisms between these gradings in order to define the fundamental grading group. We prove that this group is isomorphic to the fundamental group à la Grothendieck as considered in previous papers. In case the $k$-category is Schurian generated we prove that a universal grading exists. Examples of non-Schurian generated categories with universal grading, versal grading or none of them are considered.
