Pivot is the primary source of funding information at Purdue. Pivot gives you the ability to identify funding opportunities and connect 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.  Use this link to create a profile, log in to your existing account, and set funding alert and tracking options.
