Illinois State University’s subscription for SPINPlus will be ending effective June 30, 2015. After that date, the University will no longer have access to any of the information stored in the system. Please make note of your saved searches or any other information you want to keep.

Effective July 1, 2015, Illinois State will be subscribing to GrantForward, which will be accessible through the Research and Sponsored Programs website. GrantForward offers all of the features that SPINPlus did (funding opportunity search, saved and emailed searches, and researcher profiles) with a faster, more user-friendly interface. You can check out the new system at, but please note the subscription will not be active until July 1.

Research and Sponsored Programs will continue to offer scheduled and ad hoc workshops on grant funding searches, including the use of GrantForward. Please contact if you have any questions or need additional information.
