Pivot is a web-based funding and collaboration database tool, which allows users to search for funding by keyword, sponsor, and other various advanced fields.
The most comprehensive database for funding opportunities, Pivot contains up-to-date grants, awards, fellowships, and other funding opportunities covering all disciplines, as well as identifying researcher expertise within or outside Ball State.
You do not need to set up an account; however, Ball State faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to register for a free account in order to access the database from any location and have access to tools, like the ability to save searches and receive emails with new opportunities matching those searches.
Scholars are encouraged to claim their profile. The more detail and the more accurate the profile, the better the funding opportunity matches.
Students may find Pivot useful in locating not only project funding, but scholarships and fellowships as well. (You must use your full Ball State University email address as your Pivot username).
The Pivot “Knowledge Center” section offers dozens of articles detailing different areas of the database and search function tutorials.
More short tutorials can be found on the ProQuestPivot YouTube Channel.
