At the University of New South Wales

Researchers at universities are encouraged to develop profiles on multiple databases/services and to maintain good awareness of new opportunities – both within UNSW and beyond. The Grants Management Office and the Research Strategy Office compile an electronic newsletter, Grant News, providing up-to-date advice on research funding opportunities. Grant News is emailed to subscribers fortnightly and is
also available on the GMO webpage.

SPIN (Sponsored Programs Information Network) is a computer database with detailed and up-to-date information about thousands of government and private funding opportunities from Australia and overseas. The SPIN database currently contains details for over 19,500 funding opportunities covering a broad range of subject areas and award types. Applicants in Australia are eligible for more than 4,400 of these programs, nearly 1,000 of which are offered by Australian organisations.

The New Staff Induction website provides a comprehensive listing that will provide you with additional information on the support services available to researchers.
