SPIN Grants Database

The university is a subscriber to the SPIN Grants Database, a comprehensive database for externally funded grant opportunities. Operated by InfoEd Global, LSU faculty and staff can use the database directly through GeauxGrants. Simply login and select the SPIN menu tab on the left hand side.

The Louisiana Board of Regents also provides this service to anyone affiliated with a Louisiana institution of higher education. If you are not able to use SPIN through GeauxGrants, you will need to request an account on the SPIN site. Go to the page, select LSU as the institution, and enter your email address.  You will be able to then register your username and password.

Why use SPIN?

SPIN provides access to over 40,000 research funding opportunities, with a broad scope of grants and fellowships covering all disciplines from US agencies and abroad. It is actively maintained, and includes full text searching and stored search parameters that can be readily accessed. The SMARTS automation allows you to create automatic notification for stored searches through email or RSS feed notifications.
