Finding Grants

SUNY Cobleskill utilizes the Community of Science (COS) online grants database to identify and track available funding opportunities from private, state and federal government sources.


Faculty and Staff can directly access Community of Science/COS one of two ways:


  1. IP Access
    From any on-campus computer, a user can go right to Users can immediately begin searching the database from on-campus computers.
  2. Username and Password
    Faculty and staff can log into with a COS username and password anytime, anywhere. Logging in this way will take the user to his or her COS Workbench. From the COS Workbench, the user can search Funding Opps, Expertise, and set up Alerts. Username and password access is necessary when a) a user is off-campus, or b) when a user needs to save a Funding record or search.
