PIVOT: A new tool to identify funding opportunities

The Augustus C. Long Health Sciences Library (HSL) and Sponsored Projects Administration (SPA) are pleased to introduce you to a new tool PIVOT, which allows instantaneous access to the funding opportunities that are right for you. 

Start using PIVOT at: https://pivot.cos.com/ and sign up for an account using your Columbia University email address. 

PIVOT strengths:

  • Editorially curated up-to-date funding opportunities span all disciplines and project types, from health and medicine to humanities, law and education, worth an estimated $49 billion.
  • A proprietary algorithm that compiles researcher profiles and matches them to current funding opportunities.

HSL and SPA will be collaborating in the coming months in various outreach and training events. In the meantime find video tutorials and other training materials, or if you have questions, please feel free to send them to us via HSL.
