Pivot is the primary source of funding information at Purdue. Pivot gives you the the ability to identify and connect with funding opportunities and with other researchers, both within the Purdue community and globally. It combines the most comprehensive, editorially maintained database of funding opportunities with a unique database of 3 million+ scholar profiles. Its proprietary algorithm compiles pre-populated Purdue researcher profiles and matches them to current funding opportunities in the expansive COS database. This allows users to search for a funding opportunity and instantly view matching faculty both inside and outside of Purdue. Conversely, a search for a scholar will link to matching funding opportunities.  Follow this link to create a profile.  To set funding alerts and tracking options, log in to your existing account. For help with Pivot, view online tutorials on the Pivot website, or check out our one-page Pivot Quick Reference Guide (PDF).
