In 2014, the University of North Carolina System Office transitioned NC State’s funding opportunity database from COS Pivot to InfoEd SPIN. SPIN allows you to search for funding opportunities, as well as set up custom email alerts for opportunities that meet your search criteria. It is open to all faculty, staff and students of NC State.

Profile Setup

You can use SPIN from any computer on the NC State campus without logging in. To create and save custom searches, you will need to create a user profile.

Profile requests must be approved manually. Within one business day, you will receive a confirmation email of your request, and from there you will be able to create a password and log in.
