Search for Funding

The OVPR maintains an institution-wide subscription to Pivot, a database of funding opportunities and researcher profiles. Users can search Pivot for relevant funding opportunities in their disciplines from a wide range of federal agencies, private foundations, professional societies and more. Pivot also allows users to save searches and receive weekly email updates with newly listed opportunities.

Another useful component of Pivot is its researcher profiles. Once a user establishes a profile, Pivot will provide suggested funding opportunities based on key words from the user’s research interests, prior publications, etc. Information in the profile is user-editable, but most faculty members already have profiles automatically created by Pivot using information drawn from p ublicly available sources like department websites.

To get started with Pivot, visit their website at and click “Sign up” in the upper-right corner of the page. The site will guide you through the process of establishing your account and creating a profile (or claiming one if it has been automatically generated).

For help using Pivot, click here to visit the support page, or contact Blake Thomas at 710-3153.
