InfoEd SPIN Global is an amazing resource that Bradley University students have access to using their BU e-mail address. On the InfoEd website, students can search for various funding and internship opportunities. There are hundreds of new opportunities posted daily.

InfoEd offers several search options. The basic search allows users to search for any offers pertaining to their field of study. The keyword search will allow students to choose from many provided keywords to help narrow down their search area. The last search option is the advanced search where students can search for a particular field and then search for a specific department within that field, allowing for an extremely narrow search.
