Funding Resources

The staff at GFCR is available for assistance at any stage of your funding search. On this page you will find links to a number of databases that you can access to aid in your funding search, as well as listservs to which you can subscribe. Additionally, if you already know where you want to apply, we will be more than happy to work with you to put together a competitive proposal.


  • SPIN: A searchable database for potential funding options you can access from any campus IP address. You can also create your own profile to receive alerts for funding that may fit your particular research interests.
