Rutgers recently subscribed to the Pivot database, and it is now available to all faculty and staff. Pivot is a comprehensive resource for finding global funding opportunities. It includes funding opportunities for all disciplines and project types from all source types (federal, non-federal, foundation, and private funding opportunities). Pivot also includes information on calls for papers (Papers Invited) and lists of funding awards already made for projects.
Pivot allows users to set up their own profile to aid collaboration.
- To create your account, click “Sign up” and select “Use Email Address/Create password.”
- Use your Rutgers.edu email address and select “Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey” as your institution. Every time you access Pivot, you will need to log in with this individual account.
After signing up for an individual account, you can claim and populate your own researcher profile to receive personalized recommendations and connect with other researchers. Rutgers previously had a contract Pivot several years ago. If you previously had an account, your old account has been reactivated and you can start using the program today.
Only Rutgers faculty, staff, and students are eligible to create accounts.
New users can make accounts at pivot.proquest.com
