Pivot is a searchable database containing government, corporate and foundation funding opportunities. Faculty can also identify other researchers worldwide to collaborate on projects through the program’s Faculty Profile component. Keyword searches can be saved and the system will automatically notify you of new opportunities that meet your criteria so there is very little time commitment required after the initial session. Personalized training is available and takes about 30-45 minutes.
