Pivot is an easy-to-use searchable database that provides information on funding opportunities from federal, non-federal, foundation, corporate, and other private sponsors across all disciplines. Pivot also identifies researcher expertise within or outside the University to help connect with potential collaborators.

Once completed, the request will route to your supervisor and then the Research Development Office RDO (please let your supervisor know to expect this form).
