Pivot, formerly COS, is a research funding database that encompasses all disciplines and combines a comprehensive source of global funding opportunities with a large collection of scholar profiles. GrantSearch, the Grants Resource Center’s funding database, is a not-for-profit service of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities and contains over 1,500 funding opportunities that support academic activities such as research, education, training, fellowships, program or curriculum development, and/or equipment acquisition.
