Attend our Find Funding Workshop
Held once each semester, this interactive workshop will teach you the basics on how to search for funding opportunities. If you have research ideas and need to know where to begin, we will give you the tools you need and help you develop strategies to identify sponsors. The second half of the workshop is an interactive lesson on how to use the recently updated InfoEd SPIN (Sponsored Programs Information Network) database to conduct funding searches.
