The NC State research community has access to three large funding opportunity databases which may be accessed without a login from any on-campus computer.
During fall 2014, University of North Carolina General Administration (UNC-GA) transitioned our funding opportunity database from COS Pivot to InfoEd SPIN. Create a profile in SPIN to continue receiving customized funding alerts.
