Who might be interested in funding my research/creative project?

This is often the first question faculty pose as they begin the grant writing process. OSPR is here to help you answer this question using a variety of online tools.

Although each of these tools provides basic summary information (deadlines etc), you are encouraged to follow-up on any leads by visiting the sponsor’s website directly. Databases, while helpful, may not always have the latest updates from every sponsor.

SPIN Funding Opportunities Database

This database of funding opportunities (maintained by Infoed International) offers the following functionality:

  • Search by simple keywords.
  • Advanced searches limited by criteria of importance to you (sponsor type, citizenship requirements, etc.).
  • Faculty are welcome to explore the database on their own—it should be available from any Keene State College computer by clicking on the link below.
  • OSPR will provide individual training for new users of the database, if desired. Please contact Penny Miceli to schedule an appointment.
