Funding Opportunity Databases & Email Alerts
SPIN and GrantForward are large databases covering funding opportunities in all areas of academic research. These resources allow you to develop a funding profile that can be saved and run in real time. Profiles are used to generate email alerts of new and updated funding opportunities relevant to your interests. You can also save individual opportunities of interest to you and then generate email alerts, similarly, for new and updated information.
Explore all of the links for the funding databases listed to determine which of these will provide the information most useful to you in your search for research funding. All of the sites listed provide email alert services.
