Pivot is a comprehensive database of funding opportunities and collaborators across many disciplines. It provides access to currently available research opportunities from a variety of funding sources (federal, foundation, private) and offers a mechanism to connect with researchers from other institutions. Pivot’s searchable and curated database of global funding opportunities covers over 13,000 public and private sponsors and over $70 billion of funding.

Pivot users can create and save individual searches. Research administrators can build department or topic searches that can be automatically updated on websites.
