Funding Opportunities

Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to use the institutional funding opportunity search tool, SPINPlus, to identify sources of funding. The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs may also be contacted at for additional assistance.


The ORSP is excited to be able to offer all UMMC employees access to a web-based funding opportunity search tool called SPINPlus. SPINPlus is designed to help identify funding opportunities, provide automated notices of opportunities, and locate potential collaborators. SPIN has over 40,000 opportunities from more than 10,000 global sponsors.

As a subscription service, SPINPlus is available to all UMMC employees when using a UMMC IP address. You may search for opportunities anonymously; however, to save searches, set up automated notices or access the system outside of the network, you must log into the system.

Questions on the system or issues creating a log-in may be directed to ​the ORSP or x5-5000.
