  • COS Funding Alert: is a weekly email notification with a customized list of funding opportunities based on specified criteria provided by the individual COS member. The COS Funding Alert system is designed so that each researcher from a member institution can go into the system and custom design their own Alert searches. This allows you to formulate searches that meet your needs as closely as possible. Please note that you will be able to browse the system, but cannot save an alert unless you create a COS funding profile. To create a COS funding profile, go to the COS homepage.
