Grant and Fellowship Deadlines

Need Help Finding Funding?

The GSO can help CLAS researchers find funding opportunities with individualized searches using the PIVOT funding database. Pivot is easy-to-use and provides information on available funding opportunities from federal, non-federal, foundation, corporate, and other private sponsors across all disciplines. Pivot also identifies researcher expertise within or outside the University to help connect with potential collaborators. Researchers can independently use PIVOT to search for funding, collaboration, and to network.  Learn more about the database and create an account HERE.

The GSO can additionally curate specific searches for faculty, students, and researchers with all levels of experience based on criteria provided.  Funding opportunities can be searched by field/discipline, funder, keywords, amount, deadlines, etc. If you would like to learn more about setting up a funding search tailored to your needs, please contact Bethany Cornwell or the GSO mailbox.
