Finding Funding Sources

External Funding Resources
Several websites allow you to search through thousands of agencies to find the funding source that is appropriate for your needs. Some of the best sites are:
InfoEd SPIN: The Calvin College community now has access to InfoEd’s SPIN database.  InfoEd works with over 500 medical centers, universities, institutes and corporations to focus on a single mission: increase the impact of research by transforming the research administration process.
FoundationSearch - Fully searchable, online database of foundations for the serious prospect researcher, containing vital information about the funding history, preferences and contacts of over 100,000 US foundations.
Contact the Grants Office for login information.

That's what we're here for!
