SPIN (Sponsored Programs Information Network) is a searchable database designed to provide up-to-date information on current federal, non-federal, and international funding opportunities, including:  Fellowships, Research Grants, Publication Support, Sabbatical Support, RFAs (NIH Guide), Curriculum Development, Conference Support, RFPs (Commerce Business Daily) and more.

You can search by keywords or conduct more advanced searches by specific criteria. Faculty members are welcome to explore the database on their own.
SPO will also provide individual training for new users.
To schedule an appointment contact Sophia Hinojosa

Once a SPIN profile is created, you can create a set of search criteria and parameters.

SMARTS provides an automated alert system using the search criteria developed in SPIN. You can register to receive regular automated alerts as the system periodically searches for matches. You must have a user login to set up alert preferences. To establish your login and schedule an individual training session, contact Sophia Hinojosa.
