Tools for finding funding and collaborators

The University provides access to global databases for research administration and funding opportunities. The Office of the Vice Provost for Research & Scholarship also collects proposals for limited submissions (opportunities for which only one team per institution can apply).



Pivot is the most comprehensive and trusted source for global funding information. It saves searches and tracks opportunities, and allows you to discover collaborators and get tailored funding recommendations and alerts.

Limited Submission Competitions

Notify at the Office of the Vice Provost for Research and Scholarship (OVPRS) to initiate the internal competition process. Provide your Notice of Intent to apply, up to three months in advance of the sponsor’s deadline, to coordinate the review of applications.

Corporate and Foundations
