Find Funding

PIVOT is a subscription database that contains funding opportunities from over 11,500 sponsors and provides the ability for WCU faculty, student and staff to identify and connect to the most comprehensive source of Federal, State and private sector funding opportunities. Pivot also enables researchers to identify potential research partners inside or outside WCU. Successful matches require researchers to claim and update their COS Pivot profiles so that they accurately reflect research interests.
