Use Pivot to find external funding opportunities
Pivot is a comprehensive worldwide database that includes funding opportunities and profiles of millions of potential collaborators. You can search for funding by keywords or funding organization's name, track individual opportunities, and receive ongoing alerts. No need to run the same search over and over – you can set up individualized searches, and receive one weekly email that lists all the new opportunities from those searches.
Here are links to some sample Pivot searches (Pivot’s Quick Search is also an easy way to search across all available funding opportunities to get broad results):
- Arts and Humanities
- Health and medicine
- Natural and physical sciences
- Social and behavioral sciences
All faculty, staff, and students can access Pivot from any IU workstation or through IU Secure.
Here is a Quick Guide with instructions and tips on using Pivot.
