Funding Searches

One of the many services that the Office of Sponsored Research and Programs offer are performing funding searches in order to meet an individual's specific project in mind. After hearing the specific nature of one's project, we perform a search by using InfoEd's SPIN Search program. If you would like to do this on your own the web address is below, but please keep in mind that it is very time consuming and we offer it as a service to you.

Additionally, we use another program of InfoEd's called SMARTS/GENIUS. This program performs a search once keywords are entered, and then e-mails the user whenever funding opportunities arise that involve the user's interests. However, because this is a paid program our office wishes to monitor SMARTS/GENIUS in order to be aware of what funding is available for which faculty members. If you are interested in the SMARTS/GENIUS program, please contact Michael Simpson by email at michael.simpson@plattsburgh.edu or Marianne Wemette at marianne.wemette@plattsburgh.edu or by phone at (518) 564-2155
