Research Funding Resources

SPIN (Sponsored Programs Information Network) is an extensive database that allows UB researchers, administrators, postdocs, and students (at no charge) to search over 40,000 funding opportunities from more than 10,000 federal, public, non-profit, and private sponsors. Registered users can set up and save search preferences, sign up for email notifications, organize and export funding searches and funding opportunities.

Support Available for Grant Applications

Attention: UB Faculty Researchers

If you have recently had an external funding proposal declined, the VPRED office may be able to provide support — including funding for additional data and grant writing assistance — to address gaps identified by reviewers. The goal of this program is to help make the application more competitive for future external funding opportunities. For example, if a lack of preliminary data was a contributing negative factor to the proposal, you may be eligible to receive funding from the VPRED office to help address that issue.

Please contact Chitra Rajan at chitrara@buffalo.edu or Kenneth Tramposch at  kmt1@buffalo.edu  for more information.​
