Learn How to Use SPIN to Find Funding Opportunities for Research
Thursday, January 22nd from 11:30am - 12:30pm

The Office of Research is pleased to invite all CSU faculty, staff, and student researchers interested in learning how to use SPIN to attend a webinar on Thursday, January 22nd from 11:30am - 12:30pm. Click here to register for this webinar. SPIN is an extensive research funding opportunity database that allows you to locate all types of funding for your research. Although anyone can search the SPIN database from a CSU domain computer on campus, in order to use the database from off campus, and to take full advantage of the database (e.g., personalize your searches, save searches, request emails with new funding opportunities that match your searches, etc.), you must create a GENIUS account. CSU researchers, faculty, and students interested in establishing a GENIUS account, please click here for instructions.
