The Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to make available to the university community the funding search platform PIVOT, an intuitive tool that searches globally for external funding sources for Sciences, Humanities, Arts … myriad disciplines … and helps identify potential collaborators with the similar research interests. Funding data collected is verified for accuracy, updated for currency and formatted for quick targeted searching.

Through hands-on training for PIVOT you will learn how to:

  • Receive regular alerts whenever new funding opportunities are posted
  • Specify search terms so that you only receive funding opportunities in your area of expertise or subject matter you choose
  • Identify researcher expertise from within or outside WSU
  • and more!

The PIVOT workshop is available to current WSU faculty, chairs & directors, postdoctoral trainees & graduate students, academic staff and administrators. This event is free but registration is required.
