Pivot Grant Finding Aid

Looking for money to help your research? Look no further than Pivot! Pivot is a grant-finding database funded by UGA's Office of the Vice President for Research which makes identifying potential funding sources much easier. Pivot is divided into two sections: Funding and Profiles. Funding allows searching and setting up alerts for funding opportunities, and Profiles allows you to "claim" your personal profile and update your information. You will need to create an account to use these features.
