									Profile for Funding Opportunity Database
Sponsored Research Services subscribes to comprehensive databases maintained by InfoEd International, a company dedicated to providing resources to assist researchers in their efforts to obtain extramural funding. GENIUS (Global Expertise Network for Industry, Universities and Scholars) serves as a searchable registry of institutional talent and expertise for use in industry and academia. A GENIUS database profile is also used for SMARTS matching. SPIN (Sponsored Programs Information Network) includes information on funding opportunities from federal, state, foundation, and other types of sponsors. The database is updated daily. SMARTS (SPIN Matching and Research Transmittal System) is InfoEd's electronic notification system for funding opportunity information. When the information in a funding opportunity matches a profile in the GENIUS database, an email message is sent to the faculty or staff member. Using this form, we will create a basic GENIUS/SMARTS profile for you that will enable you to receive funding opportunity notifications based on keyword matching. See page 2 of this form for information on keywords.

See Linguistics/Philology Planning/Policy Studies the full list for the best matching. The more specific you make your keyword selection, Political Science the more relevant your matched results will be to your interests. Population Studies  Keyword matching is hierarchical by default (e.g., selecting the major heading Psychology “Engineering” will match all listings for Aeronautical/Astronautical Engineering, Ceramic Rehabilitation/Therapy Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, etc.) Social Services  Keyword matching is performed on an “or” basis – e.g. selecting “Mining” and “Music” Sociology will yield results that match either term. Sociolegal Studies  If you are providing your own specific keywords, indicate the category/categories under Public Affairs
