Databases

  • SPIN Global Suite is a subscription-based source of funding opportunity information for most disciplines. Miami students, faculty, and staff can use SPIN free of charge while on campus (or connected to the Miami VPN).  Although the creation of an account is not necessary, any researcher who does create an account can create and save search criteria.  Optionally, the researcher can choose to receive automatic SMARTS alerts for opps that match his or her profile.
  • grants.gov allows researchers to search for Federal agency funding opportunities.
  • The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) is the most comprehensive listing of Federal assistance programs.
  • The Defense Innovation Marketplace is a  source for Department of Defense (DoD) funding information.
  • Biomedical and health researchers can find funding opportunities on the Trialect website. After following the link, select Grants and Funding from the "Opportunity Type" drop-down menu.
  • Researchers in biological and earth sciences can sign up with Instrumentl. A free account will allow you to view funding opportunities with deadlines in the next 90 days that are a good match for one project. Please be aware that as part of the account creation process, Instrumentl requests a significant amount of personal information, as well as information about the specific project you are seeking to fund. Instrumentl's FAQs indicate they use the information they collect only to match users with funding opportunities and do not share it with third parties, but you should still exercise caution and provide the requested information only at your own discretion.
  • Humanities and social science scholars and researchers can use H-Net as a source of funding information.
