Other Search Tools
The Office of Research subscribes to Community of Science (COS) Funding Opportunities TM, a searchable funding database with over 25,000 records representing over 400,000 individual funding opportunities from numerous sponsors across all disciplines, including the humanities and fine arts.  The database is available to UCSB faculty, staff, and students via a campus IP address.

COS membership is free and allows users to save searches, set up weekly email updates to previously saved searches, and track updates to specific funding opportunities.  To sign up click here.
