Subscription-Based: SPIN Database
As a resource for our community, the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research currently provides an institution-wide subscription to SPIN funding opportunity database.
- SPIN offers a wide-ranging funding opportunities database with over 40,000 programs from more than 10,000 unique sponsors. Visit SPIN from any UCLA IP address to start searching. Need help? Get acquainted with these Training Videos.
As of August 2015, the UCLA institution-wide subscription to Pivot has been discontinued. If you wish to provide input regarding Pivot, SPIN, or other funding opportunity databases/resources, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a service to the campus community, the Research Enhancement Office coordinates a series of subscription-based funding opportunity e-newsletters. If you are interested in subscribing, please follow this "SUBSCRIBE" link. You will be routed to a web form where you will have the option of subscribing to one or more newsletters by topic.
Please note that some private funders have requested special coordination of applications with the University. Please refer to the UCLA Corporate, Foundation, and Research Relations website for an up-to-date list of these private funders. Please connect with the staff member assigned to your unit for additional assistance.
