The Great Bethune Cookman University is proud and enthused to present link to various funding opportunities to our faculty and staff. The link presented below will assist the researcher or project director in identifying a potential partner in their research endeavors. Please visit SPINPlus as often as possible and call our office with any questions or concerns.
SPINPlus is a comprehensive web-based system that is comprised of three product modules—that is, SPIN, GENIUS, and SMARTS.
SPIN is a database of funding opportunities, GENIUS is a database of investigator profiles, and SMARTS is a matching alert service. These products work together to ensure that faculty and Principal Investigators (PIs) are able to locate the most current funding opportunities available in their field of interest quickly and efficiently, faculty and PIs may search through profiles of other faculty and PIs in other locations, and provide opportunities to form collaborative partnerships for the purposes of fulfilling funding opportunities. The crown jewel of this program is that faculty may enter their vitas into the database which, in turn, will search for keywords and forward related funding opportunity announcements directly to faculty members.
