Western’s research community has free access to the PIVOT Community of Science. Designed for faculty, staff researchers, and graduate students, it’s intuitive and easily implemented.
Pivot is a database of funding opportunities for researchers that is very comprehensive, editorially maintained with funding opportunities worth an estimated $33 billion. Pivot allows users to create their own profile, search for funding opportunities, save the search criteria, and have those searches performed on a weekly basis with updates sent to your email account.
PIVOT is accessible to all Western faculty, staff and students, and can be accessed from any campus computer. Registration to PIVOT also allows login off-campus.
To access PIVOT from off campus, you must create your PIVOT account.
