The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs, like the rest of UM, will be closed for the holidays, December 22nd -January 3rd. If you are anticipating a submission for a deadline falling during the break, please be aware that the proposal must be internally processed and approved by December 21st.
The number of searches conducted via the on-line Sponsored Programs Information Network (SPIN) is increasingly rapidly: from 18 in August, to 68 in September, to 125 in October. The OR strongly encourages UM faculty and staff to use SPIN to search for funding opportunities relevant to their interests. Search from any computer on campus (dial-in does NOT work for this service); start from http://www.infoed.org/WConnect/wc.dll?spinwww~jumpspin.
