Databases to Search for Funding Opportunities
UTMB investigators have access to a variety of funding databases, which include:
- SPIN (Sponsored Programs Information Network), also available via InfoEd, is a fundng database of over 13,000 national and international programs. You may conduct a Quick Search by free-text words, or use Advanced Search to search on keywords, applicant type, award type, geographic location, sponsor, deadline date, and more. For more information, please contact Linda Crumpler.
- NSF Online
- FCSearch (available only on CD Rom in Research Services’ development office), please contact Linda Crumpler.
- Foundation Finder and 990 Finder - Search by grantmaker name, geography or EIN number; or search by name for the latest 990 or 990PF form.
- GuideStar: The National Database of Nonprofit Organizations: search by name of foundation for links to IRS 990 reports, including awards made. (What will the IRS form 990 or 990PF tell you? You can find out what projects and grants were funded during a given year, who the board members are, whether the organization is a private foundation (PF), mailing address, and sometimes grant guidelines.)
