SPIN (Sponsored Programs Information Network) SPIN is a database of funding opportunities designed to provide up-to-date information on current national and international government and private funding sources. All of the data in SPIN is obtained directly from the sponsoring agencies to ensure the integrity of the information. You can access SPIN from any on-campus Regis University computer by visiting www.infoed.org/new_spin/spin.asp. To access the SPIN and SMARTS databases off campus, you will need to be registered with InfoEd. Contact the Center for Scholarship and Research Engagement if you have not already registered for these online databases.
