Grants Resource Center—GrantSearch
The Grants Resource Center provides direct access to funding-information services for higher education through its funding database, GrantSearch. GrantSearch is designed so that faculty members can easily access grant-availability information according to academic discipline and funding agency. For assistance or more information, contact the Office of Sponsored Programs at 260-481-4101.
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 three-million-plus scholar profiles. Its proprietary algorithm compiles prepopulated 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 to instantly view matching faculty both inside and outside Purdue. Conversely, a search for a scholar will link to matching-funding opportunities. Learn how to create a profile. To set funding alerts and tracking options, log in to your existing account. For help with Pivot, view online tutorials on the Pivot website, or view the one-page Pivot Quick Reference Guide [PDF]. If you have questions, please contact the Office of Sponsored Programs at 260-481-4101.
