Vanderbilt transitioned funding opportunity databases in July 2018 from ProQuest Pivot to InfoEd Global SPIN. Vanderbilt University employees may access SPIN here.

The SPIN database offers several advantages, including:

  • more accurate information from searches;
  • more results due to a broader range of search options; and
  • vetted deadlines for requests for proposals (RFPs) by InfoEd’s staff.

For more information on establishing a SPIN profile and how to search for funding opportunities, please view this presentation.

For additional technical assistance, Vanderbilt employees should contact Corporate and Foundation Relations at (615) 322-8856. VUMC employees should contact the VUMC Corporate and Foundation Relations team at (615) 936-3088.
