The Office of Research and Sponsored Projects can assist you in identifying funding opportunities based on your areas of interest and expertise.  You may contact our staff grant writer, Dr. Shelley Bartenstein, at to set up a meeting time.  She will work with you to find funding sources, as well as potential collaborators.

In addition, you can access two services through our website, InfoEd SPIN and GENIUS/SMARTS, that provide access to funding opportunities.  The SPIN database can provide an immediate result from search parameters you enter.  GENIUS/SMARTS service allows you to set up a profile and receive automatic emails from the InfoEd database.
