Pivot Funding Opportunities Database

If you haven’t had a chance to check out Pivot, this is just a reminder that the service—available to UCI faculty, staff, and students—provides a comprehensive database of funding opportunities worldwide and across all disciplines, and also has a flexible portfolio of tools to support research collaborations.

Using Pivot, individual researchers can search for funding matches using filters and keywords, or create their own personalized alerts, while departments/schools can use Pivot to create alerts for groups of researchers. In addition, Pivot’s profile function (available through the drop-down menu at the top of the page) enables faculty to find potential collaborators and provides another means of receiving customized funding information.
