InfoEd SPIN/SMARTS tool to be discontinued

As part of the transition to the UVMClick Grants Module, the InfoEd SPIN/SMARTS tool will be discontinued with the termination of our InfoEd subscription in June of this year.  At that time, current SPIN/SMARTS users will no longer have access to this tool for funding searches and alert notifications. 


What this means

All current SPIN/SMARTS users should switch to UVM’s other funding tool called Pivot.  If you don’t already have a Pivot user account, we encourage you to sign up for one in the next couple of months before the SPIN/SMARTS tool is discontinued.
