Pre-Award Research/Funding Opportunities
Pivot is an extensive database of funding opportunities that includes federal agencies, private and foundational sponsors. All UH faculty, staff and students have free access to this database. It is quite easy to join. You may join by going to http://pivot.cos.com/, clicking on the "Sign up” on the upper right side of the screen and filling in requested information. Pivot will automatically create a profile for you and match funding to your research.
A great place to start is the “Support” tab. There are FAQs, guides and even a YouTube channel with directions and explanations. The database is user-friendly. To begin searching for funding, click on “Search – for funding or scholars” and follow the prompts. Once you have set up a funding criteria, Pivot will send you weekly updates of funding opportunities that match your research interests.
