Pivot Funding Opportunities & Collaboration Database – Now available to campus

Nov. 22, 2019

Pivot, an easy-to-use keyword-searchable database for finding current funding opportunities specifically tailored to research needs for faculty, staff, and students is now available. Also use Pivot to search for potential collaborators and conference calls for papers.

Pivot provides information about funding sources for researchers in virtually all fields - including non-sciences. Pivot is available for all UNLV faculty, staff, researchers, research administrators and students.

Pivot replaces UNLV's subscription to the Grants Resource Center.

Access Pivot two ways

1.     On-campus go directly to https://pivot.proquest.com/

2.     Create login and create/claim profile for access to all resources and benefits  https://pivot.proquest.com/
