GRANTS CORNER MSU recently upgraded its subscriptions to Community of Science and SPIN to include funding alert services. These are customized e-mail services that alert individual scholars to new and updated funding opportunities that match their research interests and for which they are eligible. Over half a million scholars worldwide use these services to identify funding sources, to promote their experience and research, and to identify peer reviewers and collaborators worldwide.

These databases are NOT just for scientists. They also include funding opportunities in the humanities, arts, social sciences and related disciplines.

Funding Alerts from Community of Science (COS)

When your name was added to the COS database, an introductory search was created by COS. If you find that you are receiving alerts that are too broad or that do not fit your area of expertise, we encourage you to go into COS Funding Alert (via your COS Workbench) at and create personalized searches by selecting your own keywords, funding type or sponsor type. COS sends these alerts weekly when there is a match.

Funding Alerts from SPIN

When keywords are selected in your faculty expertise profile (in GENIUS) at, they are automatically used for matching and will result in funding alert e-mails (potentially daily).

All information in the faculty expertise profiles and funding alerts can be modified by you at any time. COS and SPIN services can be accessed from off campus with your username and password.

Please call Audrey Thurlow at 994-6240 if you need assistance or want a demonstration of these services.
