PIVOT maintains a database of grants, fellowships, and other funding information from public and private, domestic and international sources. Although the name refers to holdings on science funding, this service also offers a wealth of information on social sciences, humanities and community outreach funding. This valuable tool can also help you make connections within Duke University with its database of Duke faculty and postdocs. Creating a PIVOT COS email alert is an invaluable tool for researchers investigating funding options. Visit the Pivot website: http://pivot.cos.com
Please note: To access Duke’s subscription, you must use your Duke email address when creating your account.
The Office of Research Support holds monthly Finding Funding workshops where participants can learn how to set up personalized funding searches on this tool. Dates and sign up links can be found here: https://ors.duke.edu/workshop-and-training-by-topics.
Pivot has created lots of short and easy-to-follow tutorials to help you set up custom funding search queries and use the site's many other helpful features. Links to Pivot tutorials are available at: https://ors.duke.edu/cos-tutorial.
