External Funding Opportunities
The PIVOT database contains over 25,000 domestic and international funding opportunities related to all academic areas including the arts, humanities, social sciences and physical sciences. PIVOT is available to faculty, staff, and students from any computer. Once on the PIVOT website, a personal account may be established. PIVOT offers useful features such as a pre-established (faculty) profile based on publicly available information, identification of internal and external researchers with similar research interests, and enhanced user interface for managing multiple funding opportunity searches. SPAR contracts with RefWorks-COS for access to the PIVOT database.
