Pivot–the most comprehensive search for grant funding opportunities

The Office of the Vice President of Research and the UConn Libraries have acquired Pivot, a database for grant funding opportunities. You can search for grant funding in all the major research areas in the social science, sciences and humanities. In addition, this is  a superb place to find potential collaborators through the Pivot Profiles, which provide information on over 3 millions scholars from around the world.

For those new to this product, a Pivot representative is coming to UConn to do a demonstration of all the features available in this database. This presentation is open for faculty, students and staff.
