Searching for Funding? Try Pivot

Western’s subscription to Pivot is available to the Western research community as a resource for finding research funding opportunities for faculty and students.

PIVOT can be accessed from any computer on campus. If you wish to use PIVOT off campus, please register for access at: under the “sign up” option.

Please let Karen Kueneman,, know if you do apply to certain funding sources because you found it on Pivot as Research Western is monitoring the benefits of paying for this resource.

Pivot is a tool that:

  • Provides access to a comprehensive source of funding opportunities globally
  • Sends weekly updates on saved searches

You can create your own profile and Pivot pinpoints funding opportunities with searches that are:

  • Accurate: Updated daily to add new information drawn from sources linked to profiles in publications from vetted sources and web content associated with a scholar’s profile, and to drop out expired opportunities.
  • Automated: Users can receive alerts whenever new matching opportunities are posted that match their saved searches.
  • Focused: Search just one database for funding in any discipline and country, rather than multiple sources or scattershot across the internet.
